Many L-1011's were fitted or refitted with center overhead bins, and the aircraft still retains a lot of headroom. Also, many of the originally much too small side overhead bins have been replaced with much larger ones, again not impacting the perception of openness in the L-1011 cabin. As to why that is the case, I have no idea. I just wanted to point out that it isn't the lack of a customer option (center overhead bins) that gives the interior of the aircraft the extra space (or perception thereof). My comments come from my experience flying Delta's domestic and international L-1011 fleet -- I have no idea what other airlines have done with their L-1011's, but short of lowering the ceilings :) I think that feeling of open space would remain. email@example.com wrote: : : In Article<airliners.1996.333@ohare.Chicago.COM>, : > : > My question is: how was extra headroom justified? : > Would it reduce the L1011's cargo capability? : > Or -- possibly -- improve it? : > : My guess is that the greater headroom was made possible by the lack of center : overhead bins and comparatively small (against the 747/DC10) window overhead : bins. -- Jay Vassos-Libove libove@MindSpring.com 11575 Laurel Lake Drive +1 770 552 0543 Roswell, GA 30075 U.S.A.
