What is located at front of the Bombardier Q400 cabin between the washroom and exit

Wed Aug 29, 2018 1:13 am

We flew on a WestJet Encore Q400 yesterday and noticed as you enter that there is a large walled off area between the washroom and where the seats start. Does anyone know what is behind this area?

I think it's the small forward baggage hold.

Great question. I just recently flew on an airBerlin branded eurowings flight on a Q400 and was trying to figure that out myself. Glad to see someone answer that.

Should be a compulsory item now-a-days for every aircraft. :rotfl:

Closet for crew bags. They’ll occasionally throw valet bags up there if they run out of space or have late bags show up.

You can just about see the outline of the forward right cargo compartment door with it's metallic handle on this picture - that cargo compartment is an optional extra, and not all airlines opted for it.

It is a small forward baggage hold. At Encore it is use to hold crew bags, the prop ties and engine covers (prop socks are kept at the overnight stations). It is also used to overflow bags from the back when needed.

Ah so that's why some Q400s have two forward right doors.

Forward hold as stated above is directly behind the lav.
Not 100% sure how Encore's Q's are configured, but aft of the fwd hold you have a few options. Some airlines have a forward closet/additional storage, others have a forward lav, like Airbaltic's below. I can't seem to find any photos online of a Q with a forward closet

On Horizon flights, I've seen them move passenger bags between the front and back for weight and balance.
