Depends on the plane and the load. If it's an Airbus and it's empty, you'll be fine. If it's a Fokker and it's full, I've seen them confiscate rollerbags at the gate several times in the past couple of months, particularly out of LHR (... and rightly so IMHO - rollerbag owners who hog overhead bins on full flights are selfish b*ggers)

C class and *G won't help you at peak times when the first 10 rows of a F100 are C and it's fully booked (eg last Thursday night out of CDG)

Check aircraft types and approximate loads in advance here
