Since this bag is for travel, it is made to fit into the overhead or under the seat of most commercial airplanes. In reviews, one customer does mention that it would not fit in the overhead of a small plane or under the seat of a regular plane if overstuffed. So it looks like so long as the bag is not overstuffed you should no problems finding a place storing it in most planes.
Also considering its size, and the size of most airplane toilets, it would probably be more efficient to change the baby on a spare airplane seat. Good if you have a separate place for your little one or are traveling with a partner.) or just grab what you need and change the baby in the bathroom.

Now for a comprehensive review, that clearly shows just what makes the Okkatots Travel Baby backpack diaper bag one of the best will find for traveling.
Highlighting some of the best features in any traveling baby bag
One of the great and unique characteristics of the Travel Baby backpack is the diaper dispenser that can hold up to 16 diapers at one time. The diapers stay clean and neat (no more scrunched up ones), and are readily available, even when you need to store various sizes. And when you get onto the plane, the bag fits under all the airplane seats tried so far even when it is packed full.
While the bag is big (maybe even huge), it is very light weight without compromising on durability. It's size and neutral, clean unisex design that makes it excellent for either the mommy or daddy to use. It makes a perfect "dude" baby bag, so no fear dad will feel the it abuses his masculinity.
For anyone out there with a couple or more of very young kids, you can pack all the kids' stuff in this one bag quickly. It is also great for those going for a long trip, especially for air travel.
It is just amazing how much you can get into it; lots of diapers, changes of clothes, formula, bottles, a receiving blanket, toys for baby. For mom and dad, there are compartments for a wallet, snacks, DVD player and more.
Nothing tells it better then a user and here are what one user was able to pack:
User Review: What did I get into mine? 14 diapers, a 40 ct wipes packet, 14 packets of 4 oz formula, a formula dispenser. We were traveling in winter and wanted to be prepared if god-for-bid we were stranded! 4 burp cloths, 5 bibs, 3 extra outfits for baby, tissues, washcloth, pacifiers, 2 receiving blankets, baggies, multiple toys, 4-9 oz bottles in the cooler pocket, a 16 oz water, my quart sized baggie full of liquids (Tylenol, hand sanitizer, lip gloss, etc)and I used the right-side pocket as a "Mommy Pocket" for my wallet, snacks, chargers, etc. And i"m sure I've forgotten a few things too. ...

Okkatots Backpack Diaper Bag
For something a bit smaller, but just as versatile!
A regular-sized baby bag for everyday use!
If you find the Travel Baby Depot Backpack too big for regular every-day use, then you may find the Okkatots Baby Backpack Diaper Bag is just the size you need. It gives you almost the same versatility, with many of the same features, but with a smaller capacity than the larger model. Small enough to make it easy to carry around for daily use.
It is more suited for everyday use then the Travel Depot model, especially if you are using it for one child. It still holds more than most baby bags, and it has very similar features and has the accessibility of its larger counterpart.
