Anyone know the difficulties in bringing one SMALL carry-on on one of the CO's Embraers. They are the "little" 50 seaters.
Haven't flown CO in 10+ years. I "think" I remembering that on ERJ's it is luck of the draw getting an overhead bin. We travel with some meds and cameras which won't fit in a purse and am trying to think ahead.

I fly the CO Embraers on business all of the time. The usually have you leave your bag in the jetway by the door and you pick it up in the jetway when you land along with the strollers, etc. -usually there within a couple of minutes after landing. If you put your meds and cameras in a backpack you should be ok storing on the plane. Only larger bags need to get checked. The cabin storage is very limited and mostly for briefcases, laptops, coats, etc. Seems like they are flying these planes on longer routes like Newark-O'Hare as opposed to the 1 hour puddle jumps in the past.
but i do not think anyone should ever leave their prescription medicines and jewelry and real valuables as under the plane/checked luggage.
we have had to leave our pilot cases with the nice man at the end of the jetway when going onto an embrarer.
it was a mad scramble to remove what we considered real valuable (toiletries, jewelry).
the next time we flew one on one of the embrarer jets we were prepared.
if i remember correctly the overhead storage was only on one side of the plane.
