Wow. United Airlines Makes More Room For Your Bags On Embraer E175 Planes

United Airlines announced today that it is installing larger overhead bins on its Skywest-operated Embraer E175 fleet. This means there will be more room for your roll-on carry-on bags onboard.

United Airlines is augmenting their Embraer E175 aircraft with new, larger overhead bins, with plans for installation on 50 aircraft by the end of the present year and potential expansion to over 150 aircraft by the end of 2026.

New bins will be available on 50 aircraft by the end of this year and can accommodate up to 29 more bags per flight, helping make room for everyone’s carry-on. Image: United Airlines
  • This upgrade makes United the first to offer such bins on the E175
  • United expects the bins to reduce the need to gate-check bags for around one million passengers annually on these flights.
  • The extra bin space will allow for 29 more carry-on bags, a significant 80 percent increase in space, enhancing the travel experience and operational efficiency.

Larger Overhead Bins Respond to Customer Preferences

“Customer sentiment for the new overhead bins and signature interiors has been extremely positive. By helping to eliminate the need to gate check bags, we are seeing an increase in gate and boarding satisfaction,” said Linda Jojo, United’s chief customer officer. “This is just the latest way we’re working to create an industry-leading experience for all our customers – whether they’re on an international or regional flight.”

United Offers Large Bins On Over 200 Mainline Planes

United now has over 200 mainline aircraft equipped with bins large enough to fit every passenger’s carry-on bag. The airline is retrofitting its domestic narrowbody fleet. The new overhead bins in the regional fleet will provide a seamless connecting experience for customers. Every E175 aircraft outfitted with these new overhead bins will also have braille and tactile placards to enhance accessibility. That is part of a larger initiative the airline announced in 2023.

United Airlines and United Express operate an average of over 4,000 daily flights to over 350 airports across 6 continents.

SkyWest is the world’s largest E175 operator. The airline flies over 700 daily departures to more than 140 destinations, operating as United Express.

Last year, United became the world’s largest carrier, as measured by seat miles, carrying more than 150 million passengers.
