Cargo Compartment Dimensions

Hi guys,

I'm looking for data about the sizes, especially the heights of the cargo compartment on passenger aircraft.

What I've found by now:

B737NG: around 1.12m
A320: 1.19m


Does anybody know about the heights of the E190/E170 cargo compartment aswell as for the B757/767/777 or A330/A340 series?

You can find all the Boeing tech specs here: http://www.boeing.com/boeing/commercial/airports/plan_manuals.page

But in general, all widebodies are about 64 inches (1.5m) to fit the standard containers.

I don't know about the E-170/190 cargo comparments personally, but I hear lots of antedotal conversations about how rampers hate the E-170/190 because there's isn't enough room to kneel AND throw/stack the bags.

The Embraer Airport Planning Manuals give the heights of the cargo compartments as 2ft 11 inches on the E170 and 3 ft on the E190.

And here are the links to the Airbus versions.

Don't know the specific height for each aircraft, but for widebody aircrafts is common that cargo max height is 1.60 m + the ULD itself and the cargo net

Quoting Rexus (Thread starter):
E190

For the E90/E95 it's 94cm in the fwd hold, and 92cm in the aft hold. Though from the aft cargo door to the tail the height decreases because of the shape of the fuselage. I think the E70/75 have similar dimensions

In order to determin whether a bulk loaded piece of freight fits through the door you need all three dimensions. If no "up " marks are on the box, the width can be the height as well, or the lenght. The charts are available if you check the net or have the relevant books on hand.

Generally, wide body bellies allow ULDs loaded up to 160 cm height

E170 was designed by Bond villains, not only is the ceiling extremely low there are metal smoke detector and light grills that bulge out of the ceiling that I believe are placed strategically to bang your head on.
