    Mini Aeronaut

    I'm sure that Tom already has a name for the upcoming Aeronaut junior, BUT I thought it might be fun to try and guess the new name....

    Navigator
    Voyager

    Any guesses...?

    Wingman is already taken by an Aeronaut competitor from Timbuk2: http://www.timbuk2.com/tb2/products/...-on-duffel-bag I actually own the previous model of this bag, which I got for a great deal because the Aeronaut was out of my price range.

    "Aero travel bag" brings up a lot also. Too bad, since it'd be cute to mini the name for the mini version. Maybe Naut??

    Naut your average bag, by Tom Bihn.

    I would vote for Navigator... An Aeronaut can be either a Pilot or Navigator, since Pilot is already in use, Navigator would be a good choice following the theme!
    Orders are here! Unpacking A45, A30, NF20 & CP10! TB Crew rocks!!

    Miking, do you mean, that the Aeronaut does not work on European Airlines? All my research tolled it would work. We are going to Spain this autumn and I am so looking forward to seen our two Aronauts on the plain.

    I think it depends on which airline. The budget airlines have lower size limits than US and transatlantic flights, e.g. EasyJet will only guarantee carryon of 50cm x 40cm x 20cm, though on less busy flights you can get away with another 5cm in each dimension.

    I'm about to test those limits with my Western Flyer (traveling to Glasgow via EasyJet on Friday). It's 5cm under the guaranteed dimensions when empty, but it's hard not to make it bulge a little when you pack it. No way to I want to check my brand-new TB bag, which is why I bought the WF even though I already have a Tri-Star!

    I've never had any issues flying on European airlines with Aeronaut so far.

    @Ilkyway, @scribe I think @scribe's comments are correct, and that the only issues may come up with a few budget carriers. The Aeronaut usually fits without problems in overhead storage. It will fit in under the seat storage provided the end pockets are not too full, so you can "scrunch" the bag a bit. You might want to read this old thread about how the Aeronaut works stored under airline seats (@scribe this will also give you an idea about how the Tri-Star works under seats with no A/V box blockages). I think the size/weight carry-on rules on some Southeast Asian carriers are more restrictive than for European airlines.

    Aeronette?

    No? Well, whatever it's called, I'll probably get one, and that's what I'll call mine!
