Pelican 1510 case under seat on American Airlines?

Tue May 21, 2019 5:39 am

I am visiting Miami using American Airlines, and as of now the flight is listed as an A321 going and 737-800 returning. I am looking for feedback on whether a Pelican 1510 case can fit under the seat in front of me in these aircraft. I am in basic economy and am not sure I will find open space in the overhead bins. My main worry is that it will get gate checked, but I am trying to avoid that at all costs.

Thank you.

No chance a 1510 will fit under a seat. When they say "carry-on" they mean in the overhead (unless you're on a CRJ). If you want to ensure overhead space I'd either look for an upgrade or explain your situation to the gate agent(s) and let them know checking it isn't an option. Ask if you can board at the tail end of the elites.

Thanks. At the worst case I can accept it getting gate checked, after putting locks on it right after security.
