757-300 and 737-9 max overhead bin size

Are the bins on either plane big enough to hold Rimowa cabin plus?

No problems at all with Cabin Plus, except for the forwardmost bins in F on the 737. They are a little shallower than those after Row 3 or so. 753 should be fine throughout.

I thought United got rid of all the 753s and just kept the 752s.

The only 757s UA has retired are the PW-powered 757-200s, the last few of which were in high-J config for ps service.

Max overhead bins are quite large, bags actually go vertically on their sides so thickness isn't really an issue.

Great, thank you! Most recently flew a 737-7 where the bins were barely big enough for an original cabin suitcase!

The only thing that matters is if your carryons meet the baggage size on UA website.

That may be the only thing that matters TO YOU, but that's not what the OP is asking about, is it?

The OP probably doesn't want to gate check and risk getting a ding in the bag. I don't mind with my Rimowa, but my wife always hates it.

LOL, so your the one who keeps trying to sneak on an oversized bag! Seriously though, he is correct, in this case, size does matter. PAX bringing oversized bags onto the aircraft usually slow down the boarding process, and I've had to take a few delays over the years as a result. People need to learn to play be the rules.... (Not saying you don't, so please don't take it that way)

You still see the 753's quite frequently on ORD-LAX...

I believe you are referring to the 737-700, of which UA has many. The 737-7 refers to the MAX7 -- which UA has not ordered.

One of the secrets to not gate checking (and the clogging of the jetway that it causes on arrival) is not having an oversized another is to board before group 2.

So UA has no more high J 752's?

I won't because I never fly that route... But I get your point (gotta love the ambiguity of the English language).

I think 7M7 would be the more common abbreviation.

HAHA

No, my bag is a Rimowa Cabin, which complies with the dimensions AND fits in those bag size checkers at some airports.

But honestly, what is it with American domestic travellers and their oversized roll-ons?! I don't travel that often domestically in the US, but when I do, I would say at least 20-30% of the travellers are trying to take on a bag that anywhere else in the world would need to be checked in.
