Hello everyone, This was a highly requested topic where I compare the size and give my thoughts between each airplanes cargo bin. So here goes!
First up the Airbus A320 since A comes before B.
Here’s my thoughts on it. Is definitely bigger in terms of height but volume wise it’s not. Personally I find the Airbus 320 cargo bin better for people people that are taller since it’s a lot higher height wise! Loading the A320 bin can be difficult as it has different compartments separated by cargo nets that can be a pain to put back up. However a good thing is that you can definitely stack more bags across depending how big the bags are and how you lay them. Overall the bin is a nice place to hangout if the weather is crud and need to hangout for a bit.
And now the Boeing 737 bin.
My thoughts: it’s definitely more suitable for short people as it’s a lot more cramp and smaller. However it is a lot bigger length wise instead of height wise. You can probably fit 100 bags or so (estimate) in the front part of the aircraft. The bin is only separates by 1 cargo net instead of 2 and is a lot easier to put up than the 320 net. For y’all people the 737 bin is cramped and small but to a person who is shorter it’s a perfect place to work.
Below are a few pictures of such bins:
