I agree with all of the advice (especially using the bag for car trips). Perry has to fly long distance with us about twice a year (to and from). Because of the length of our flights I got him one of the carriers that open up on the sides as well to give him more room (I can't find the picture from my last post with it, but I posted a picture of it under a plane seat). However, for a 90 minute flight it's probably more hassle than it's worth - zipping it open, trying to get it zipped closed in the confines of the plane. I do take Perry out at the airport - I've never had someone say anything to me when he was walking on his leash through the airport (though wouldn't do that if it was crowded) and I take him out in the pet relief area if they have one, in the bathroom if they don't, and on the plane (take the bag into the bathroom when it's not so busy and let him out for a few minutes) but he never does anything except stretch.
I generally don't feed him at all the day we're traveling, but that's also because he gets car sick (ride to/ from the airport). I do give him a little water a few times on the flight, but doubt you'll need to on a 90 minute flight. I also include several of his favorite toys in his bag with him, and I usually keep one of my feet by the bag, especially if he gets restless.
I would recommend, especially if you haven't traveled a lot with her yet, to make sure you bring paper towels, some wet wipes, and a plastic bag (to put the soiled ones in) just in case she does get sick or has an accident
