First, the Flight Locker addition which is included with this piece is awesome. It organizes and separates socks, shoes, pants, shirts, and anything that needs be properly maintained as folded and pressed. I have taken the Flight Locker and used it in other, bigger suitcases for longer travels and have found it exceptionally handy. Also, this piece comes with a removable zip pouch for dirty laundry, which itself can be separated from the main compartment of the bag and zipped away on the handle-facing side. Also, very useful.
This piece has great rolling handling and maneuverability, a notable plus when weaving through throngs at check-in or racing the concourses to reach your gate.
Without expanding it by packing it as full as the zipper strength can handle, this piece fits perfectly in overhead bins. In smaller regional planes, it usually needs to be gate checked. That being said, those smaller, regional airline carriers typically have small overheads to start with, so that's more of a commentary on their offerings than on the offerings of this bag.
When the Flight Locker is full, the zipper configuration of the bag combined with the contouring of its semi-rigid fabric walls makes it a bit of a man-handling task to fit it inside. Also, if the Flight Locker is fit inside this piece while full, there is unused space still remaining around it, inside.
