Manufacturer Of DL MD-88/MD-90 Bin Extensions?

Thu Feb 16, 2012 9:55 pm

I was wondering, does anyone know who is the manufacturer of the overhead bin extensions on DL's MD-88s and MD-90s? I know the 757 bin extensions were made by Heath Tecna (model ATIX-2A), and I believe that Heath Tecna is also the supplier for DL's new 763ER interiors (the NuLook PBI package I believe).

Looking at Heath Tecna's website, there doesn't appear to be any bin extension package for the MD-80 and MD-90 that resembles the bin extensions on DL's aircraft. Does anyone know who made DL's MD-88/MD-90 bin extensions?

Heath Tecna makes the bin extensions. The two new bins on the planes after the mod are Zodiac.

It's safe to say that every ramp worker who's ever worked a MD-80 cringed at the thought of the Bin being any longer! :P

The bin extensions on the MD-88s were installed in the early 2000s. The MD-90 bin extensions are more recent; DL started modding them when they acquired the second-hand aircraft.

We are talking about the overhead bins in the cabin not the cargo bins.
