Next time you’re on a plane, pay attention to the look of frustration on the faces of passengers as they jam their stuff into overhead storage bins.  There may be more smiles late next year, when Alaska Airlines becomes the first to offer bins that are bigger, by almost half, than the current bins.

According to Alaska spokeswoman Halley Knigge, the carrier is the launch customer for Boeing’s next generation of 737 jets.   The new planes and their Space Bins  will hold about 48% more bags than Alaska’s current bins.  Knigge says that’s big enough to store a guitar.
