Default Airline travel

I am going to be traveling via air in February. Gucci's bag is 17"L x 11"H x 9"W. It's probably a tad bigger than what she needs, but I like for her to have a decent amount of room. Unfortunately, JetBlue doesn't seem to agree. Their limit is 17"L x 12.5"W x 8.5"H. So, it is "too big".
Do you guys have any bags you'd recommend that are SOMEWHAT cute and will fit these ridiculous measurements??? It's only a two hour flight, but I don't want my poor baby smooshed under a seat in a cramped bag.

I use Kwigy Bo bags because they are stylish and resemble the look of a real handbag. They come in two sizes, I have both. Zoe is 5lbs and the small one is fine and should fit JetBlue guidelines. If you want a pic of it I can post one.

I saw those but wasn't sure which size would be better. Gucci is only 4.6 lbs NOW, but if I am going to spend $100+ on it, I'd like for it to be useful for the future. I EXPECT her to be about 6.5 full grown. Do you think the Large would be better in that case??

Milo is just under 6lbs and the large kwigy bo is perfect for him. He could probably fit in the small but I am able to put a big blanket in the large for him and he can still stretch out

Ok. I think I will do that then. I needed a black one anyway. Hopefully she still fits when she gets older, but at this point I am about to spend $75 on an ugly one just for one trip, so I might as well get one that will fit and is nice.

Well, I just looked and apparently Kwigy-Bo is out of business..at least for now. She said they MAY start producing again in April but there is no guarantee.
Either way, no black Alexa for me
I am looking at the Jaraden La Petit Mon Ami and I really like it...anyone have any input on that one???

Yes the large would be better for you. Check the size of it though it might be too big for JetBlue. I am not at home right now but can check it when I get home.

I have the Jaraden and I think it's a fabulous bag. However, we stopped using it because I'm not a handbag kinda girl and it used to bother me. Nothing wrong with the bag itself though.

I use the sturdi Large Divided bag that fits BOTH of my dogs. I have not been on Jet Blue, but Delta and United have both had no problems with the bag.

We just flew last week, we flew Alaska and American, neither of which checked the size of the bag for they're requirements. We have a Sherpa bag that was just slightly over the required size and it did just fine
