Emirates 777-300ER Overhead Cabin Bin Size

Wed Jul 27, 2011 6:50 pm

Hi to all,

If anyone can help with our query it would be grately appreciated.
On our upcoming flight from Manchester to Karachi we are planning to carry on the baby stroller onto the aircraft and store in the overhead bin. The length of the stroller is 114cm once fully collapsed. Is this going to be a problem? As Emirates state on their website a pram maybe carried onboard depending on space. We want the stroller to be with us throughout the journey as we will connecting in Karachi onto another flight with a different airline.

Physically, 114cm is no problem in any class (just use the full-length overhead bins). EK allows priority boarding, which you should make use of, especially the India flights often have too much carry-on on board, and everything may be full when boarding late.
Note that in Dubai, strollers are actually provided and you can use them throughout the entire connectiontime. Karachi might be -as you suggested- the problem though.

Alternatively, you can check-in the stroller.
At DXB Emirates offers FOC baby strollers which you can use right from the arrival gate to the departure gate.
So you do not need yours there.
As stated above, the stroller physically fits the over head bins, but they are extremely full, especially on destinations in Pakistan and India. Most pax have different idea's about traveling light...

Why not just ask at the gate if it can be stored somewhere else in the cabin ?

I don't think we have to. Years ago we brought our one year-old daughter from CGK to MAN and back using SQ. We didn't check our stroller. Before boarding the aircraft at CGK, strollers were collected and stored somewhere in the aircraft. When leaving the aircraft at SIN, the strollers were already in the airbridge, ready to be used by passengers. When boarding the aircraft to MAN, the same thing happened again.

Strollers are usually gate checked and ready for use at the jet bridge very soon after arrival.

EK, as someone stated above, offers a free stroller service while in DXB but to be honest I can't remember if its offered for passengers connecting to a different airline - I'd imagine it is though.

Usually if a passenger brings something like that on board that they must have I try to find space in closets or crew bins to store them. Just make it known to the gate agent and they will pre-board you (you should be pre-boarded anyway with your young one!) and the crew will make it work for you.
