It really varies with who answers the question as to what response you'll get. There are those that argue if it isn't killing your feet, then the shoe is to big. While others will say it should be comfortable and tight, but not painful.
I have a similar model of shoe from madrock and they are extremely painful. However, try wearing them as long as you can stand while on the computer/watching a movie/reading (don't walk around in them, just sit). Over time they will stretch some and your feet will get accustomed to the feeling...

It does have attachment points for a waist belt (which could be used to secure it to the suitcase. Also, the "grab strap handle" is located on the back, not sure if it is wide enough to slip down over the handle of your suitcase; nevertheless, it could be used as an attachment point.

Well, your dimensions are 29.75x14.5x10.5
Here is a carry-on chart for different airlines: http://www.luggagesource.com/IBS/SimpleCat/InfoPage/asp/Comp_ID/19231.html
Doesn't look like it will fit. However, I've used my Black Diamond Sphynx 42L on multiple airlines with no problems.

It will handle being checked with no problems although you might want to take some precautions. Trash bag and duct tape does work... although it might embarrass you while standing in line. Some airlines provide large clear plastic bags or wrap for such items. A lot of people buy a cheap duffel bag to place their pack in. Finally if you want none of that just tighten everything down/tuck everything in/secure waist belt around the pack and it should be fine!
