Air travel with a car seat, Help!

It looks like we're going to be taking our first family vacation using an airplane and DH and I feel strongly that our son be in a carseat for the flights. Unfortunately we've got a Britax Regency which says on the back "no approved for air travel" most likely bc the thing is the size of a linebacker and wouldn't fit in the seat on the plane. We've also been meaning to get a convertable carseat for my parents who sit often with him, SO

If you've flown with your child in a car seat Which one have you used. Has it fit on the plane? Please help!!

Re: Air travel with a car seat, Help!

  • We have a Britax Marathon and do use it on the plane.  I suggest you buying a less expensive seat considering you already have a Britax.  Many ppl love the evenflo.
  • I have a Cosco Scenera that we use for the second car and for air travel.
    It's not as comfy as the Britax, but it's lightweight, easy to carry around an airport (it comes with a plastic cover), aircraft approved and it only cost $45 or so at Sears (lots of other stores carry it too for about the same price) 
    And since it doesn't cost much I wouldn't feel bad if something happens to it.

  • We used the britax marathon too.  It travels very easy...it has been everywhere with us....italy, bahamas and various US destinations.

    I second the Scenera.

  • I also recommend the Cosco Scenera.  SO much lighter then any other carseat.  True, its not nearly as padded as so many other carseats on the market, but my daugter never seems to complains and never has a problem falling asleep on it on a plane.
