I was just checking out some cabin views of the new NZ cabins and it made me think of a post a couple of weeks ago relating to cabin interiors.
Why do airlines fit new seats, IFE and (perhaps) toilets but leave the old luggage bins and roofs in? I understand that seating is No1 for comfort and 'wear and tear' but from an aesthetic point of view I think the old style luggage bins date the interior and look bad. The old style 767 interiors are particularly bad for this IMO.
Why not upgrade to the 777 style? Would this require side wall replacement too?
