United Airlines to Upgrade Overhead Bins on Embraer E175 Jets, Expanding Fleet Within the Year

United Airlines is set to enhance the overhead bins on Embraer E175 aircraft.

By the end of the year, modifications will be made on 50 aircraft configured with 76 seats operated by SkyWest Airlines. The plan is to expand this to more than 150 aircraft by the end of 2026. Braille tactile placards will also be installed to improve accessibility.

This upgrade will increase space by 80%, allowing for up to 29 additional carry-on bags per flight. As a result, the one million passengers who take the 150,000 flights annually will no longer need to check their bags at the gate, leading to improved customer satisfaction.

SkyWest Airlines is the world’s largest operator of Embraer E175 jets, flying more than 700 daily flights to over 140 cities under the United Express brand. United Airlines currently owns over 200 aircraft equipped with overhead bins that can accommodate carry-on luggage for all passengers and is proceeding with modifications on its domestic narrowbody fleet.
