Carry-on Baggage Restrictions ERJ-145
On a recent United flight from SYR to EWR the gate agent made an announcement that due to FAA Regulations, all carry-on baggage with wheels had to be gate checked. This was the first time I had ever heard of this requirement, and have not heard it since.
Is this specific to the ERJ-145?
I have a small rolling bag that will fit under the seat in any Regional Jet I fly on, so why the requirement to gate check?? My back pack is larger in dimensions than the rolling bag.
Any one else experienced this?
