I wouldn't. Check this comment from Amazon.com: I just Goodwilled a similar bag (65.5 inches linear) with a long history of reliable service after being warned twice on a recent overseas trip that they'd "let me go this time" but that it was oversize and to not trust that I encounter someone as flexible next time through...
