Encore carry on

In short, if your rollaboard doesn't fit the (very small) overhead bin, it will be checked to your final destination by the gate agent. True, compliant sized carry-on bags will barely fit in the bins ... with some force. Bin space on these aircraft is very limited, though, as bags need to go in sideways rather than 'wheels first'.
Not sure if youíre referencing my statement, but when I said wheels first I meant to start. Specially if itís a carry on with front pockets. It then needs to be twisted in sideways. Iíve seen lots of people struggle getting their bags in the bin, only to have the FA slide it in rather easily by doing this heh. If you just try to jam a larger bag in sideways right away, itís much more difficult.
