Will standard rollaboard fit overhead in E175?

I am flying on a Delta E-175 for the first time tomorrow.

Does a standard rollaboard (22 x 14 x 9) fit in the first class overhead bins? Or do they gate valet those bags?

It will definitely fit, but make sure you board early. Those bins tend to fill up quickly. I've been on several E175s where I had to "help" FC Diamonds/Plats put their bag in properly with wheels out (versus sideways) to free up space for others in FC.

I've been able to fit my bag on the CRJ900 as well, but I usually just pink valet tag it to avoid taking up an entire bin and the dirty looks that ensue.

They'll fit in the coach OH, but not in FC.

Go figure.

Thank you to all who replied. I had no problem getting the hardside 21 inch spinner case into the overhead of FC on the two-seat side--wheels in to the back. I am not sure what they call those cubbyholes above the A side of FC, but they certainly are not "bins" except perhaps to ants or mice.

The E175 has extended bins in FC that can accept a roll-aboard wheels or handles in on the C/D side of FC. In coach, they will not fit in that way and have to be turned sideways to fit, which means not many can be accommodated and I have not seen "pink" tagging done on the E175. If it doesn't fit, it gets checked.
