I'm using 2 1510 carry on, one to check in with the housing, one dome port and one macro port, handles, ball heads, sync cables, 45degree view finder all in the check in case. The other 1510 hand carry with the camera, lens, two Z240 and charger + accessories. This works for me as I always travel with my wife and we can use our max allowable weight and number of luggage to fit in these two 1510 + a Mares large wheeled bag to check in all our dive gears.

Also, should I leave the handles attached or detached?
I can normally do this with a carry on, but am going to run into a 7 kg limit on an upcoming trip.

The problem is the rules vary so much between airlines. Nearly all the flights to the Red Sea from the UK are charter flights and these are very strict on luggage allowance. Hand luggage is limited to 5kg and this is strictly enforced.
I've had this problem so many times now - I pay the extra supplement and change my flights to EasyJet - no more Thomson!
I use a Peli 1550 case for my camera gear.
Camera: GH3, 12-35mm, 7-14mm, 8mm, 60mm, Atomos Ninja2
Kit: NA-GH3, NA-NINJA2, Zen 170mm Dome, Keldan Luna 8 CRI, INON z240

You could save room by putting the camera in the housing. That is how I travel with my airport accelerator.
Yet many people say do not do this.
I sometimes put things a ziplock bag with foam q-tips, makeup remover triangles, spare o-rings, and other soft things in my housing
