Bingo! Does the MRJ have any underfloor baggage space? I know the fuselage is not as tall as the ERJ, but even the CRJ-700/900 managed to fit small holds. 900 usually puts excess carryons under the jet, and checked bags in the tail. Granted, bigger bins compared to the CRJ does mean fewer need to g...

All DC-10s have the same wingspan as far as I’m aware, the main differences were powerplant options and weights (with the associated landing gear changes).

L1011-500s did have a slight wingspan increase though.
