“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.”

The larger bins are already present on more than 200 aircraft whose cabins have been retrofitted by the airline. United Express, which encompasses the group’s regional flight network, has 240 E-Jets in its fleet, including aircraft operated by Skywest, Mesa and Republic Airlines.
