Zodiac (formerly Heath Tecna) has a pivot bin mod for the 757, but I don't believe it's available for the -300... or at least none of the handful of 753 operators have taken delivery of it.
Thanks for the correction. For some reason I had mixed up the 757 subfleets. Id still expect the entire 757 fleet to get phased out if the 797/MOM comes onto the market, although thats admittedly years away at this point. (Id expect theyd switch some traffic to 737 MAX and the rest to 797). So, while Id still be delighted to be wrong, I expect well see these roll back into service without new bins.
