Re: Is it possible to access the cargo compartment from the passenger compartment?

Read somewhere that IL-86 was designed in such a way that the passengers could board the cargo hold first, place their own bags in there and then climb up into the main cabin to occupy their seats. Apparently, this was popular in the erstwhile USSR.
