Lipault 19" Weekend Tote

I'd like to take this bag on as my personal item (underseat) for my overseas trip on United next month. 737 domestic and 777 International. Do you think I will have any issues? Dimensions are 19x13x8 but very flexible on height. My roller board is fine size wise, including the wheels.

I think it's the size of a suitcase. Your personal item is supposed to be purse or laptop bag sized, this is significantly larger than that. You MIGHT get away with it if they don't choose to stop you, but that thing won't fit under any seat, and they'd be well within their rights to make you check something.

That's far too big for the personal item, which needs to be 17" x 10" x 9".

And United IS enforcing it's carry on policy. Our thread on this subject (below) was even quoted in Forbes.

People who try to carry on large "carry-ons" are so annoying. Chuck.

Thank you for the input. I am not trying to be 'annoying', as I use this bag fine for Jet Blue, which has larger personal dimensions, 41 linear and this is 40 (United is 37). It does fit under their seats, it's narrow. But for this international flight I am on United and I have never flown them. I will try and find another tote. Too bad, this bag is just about perfect.
