I've flown with my Coyote, with a Snap-Plus lid (1/4" taller than a normal Snap), with no problem. It fits in the overhead on a Southwest flight just fine.
The OP has a flugel with top-sprung valves, which would almost certainly require the Snarl lid -- which I'm not sure would work as a carry-on.
I try to remember to put my valve oil in the plastic bag with my other liquids. Never had a problem. I've forgotten and left valve oil in my case a time or two, but the TSA agents have never had me open a case.

my perfect bag would/should be for :
- Bb trumpet (for the moment my old Strad)
- Flugel (adams F1)
- picc (courtois- vintage)
- at least 3-4 mutes
----maybe some scores etc etc (stands !!!)
this, now , is all not easy
1º air companies just f..k you
2º a bags like this must be verrrry expensive
medidas - de equipaje de cabina- comunes para vuelos internacionales son

alles Gute :

- Benge pocket-tp (1982)
- Carol Brass Cornet CCR-3880 (2015)

- Antoine Courtois picc. - model Roger Delmotte (1960/70)
(and home-made natural trumpets)
I checked my Wolfpak triple from the US to Germany to Chile and back with narry a dent. Otherwise, cabin-checking can be a pretty safe way to go. Have an Anvil case that holds a Bb and C--bomb-proof, but a pain to carry.
