Delta announced last year that its finally getting rid of the CRJ-200s. That’s the good news. The bad news it that won’t happen for almost three more years.

Until then, we have silly things going on like Delta adding C+ seats to row one that is one of the worst seats on the jet but now comes with “purdy” leather and free drinks on some longer flights. Sigh.

Anyway, crying about CRJ-200s is not what this post is about. No, it is about a carry-on roll aboard that is a great choice for those of us who happen to find ourselves on them again, again, again. And again some more. Take a look at the two photos above. Nice, right? Well, maybe “nice” is not the best word – maybe “impressive” is a better one.

Samsonite Upright Wheeled Carry-On Underseater Luggage

Whenever we’re sentenced an itinerary about one of these Barbie Jets, we take this Samsonite “underseater” bag each time. My wife especially it. She had this to say about the bag:

“The bag design features a front flap that opens with a zipper allowing access to everything inside while the bag remains upright. There is an additional panel inside to prevent everything falling out that can be unsnapped to completely open the bag. It came with several additional zippered pouches which I removed, all were either zipped or snapped into place allowing removal for use with ease. With careful planning you could stack your garments inside in order of use, making unpacking somewhat unnecessary except to hang things up if needed. There was room in this bag for me to pack capris, shorts and tops for 3-4 days, bathing suits, sandals and still room for a cosmetics bag as well as curling iron and hair care items. It has smaller pockets on both sides as well as on the front for handy places to stash a phone, boarding passes, etc. when going through security.”

To be fair she also has a somewhat large-ish purse as well. Between those two pieces, she is good to go and will NOT be forced to gate check the bag. This to me is such a big reason to consider this roll aboard to avoid either A) waiting for your gate checked bag or B) having Delta destroy your gate checked bag.

I like that this bag will fit so well and does not impact the limited under seat space of the person next to me (I kinda got in trouble for doing that once).

Anyway, if you, like me and my wife, find yourself often stuck on a CRJ200 then this could be the perfect bag for you! – René

  1. I have a bag the same size as this one and these will fit into some of the ultra-tiny barbie jet overheads as well. It’s fun to see fellow passengers and FA’s watch in wonder as you slip it into one of those useless spaces 🙂

    Those miserable planes can not go away fast enough. Too watch the sadness roll over every passengers face as they entered the plane and saw the lack of space, the poor design, and the crew that was relegated to this tiny jets is enough to depress any human being. Good Riddance CRJ or as our sales team called them Crappy Rattling Junkers. One of the few good things about Covid is these are closer to retirement.

  3. I have a Brics roller bag it fits under most seats but gate agents always want to take it…
