Ok...seems that the consensus is to carry on one's essentials: regs, computer, mask. In addition, one is best suited to carry on a change of clothes and some personal toiletry items. AND we're told to carry our camera, housing, strobe.

Craig ... we (two of us)use one legal carry on size rolling suitcase for masks, regs, consoles, bathing suits, toiletry items and then each take a backpack for the camera, wallets, books, etc. When we fly AA in SJ we turn over the rolling bag planeside as those do not constitute carry on for that part of the trip. We then pick it up as soon as we get off of the plane before heading into the terminal in Bonaire for immigration and to pick up our checked luggage (aka the rest of the dive gear!)Hope this helps.

Some of the airlines are getting tighter on what they will allow. I could not bring on a backpack and a rolling bag on board. I did get around the problem by packing my backpack in the rolling bag and stuffing an incredible amount of things into my softsided 'laptop' case. I had brought it prestuffed inside my roller, just in case.

What airline Linnea?

Both Continental and AA. And that was on the mid-size jets. It is weird, but it seems they are stricter on the domestic legs than the international ones. It also seems that the newer planes have much smaller overhead compartments.
