we just got a Britax Boulevard and are planning to take it on a plane ride in a couple of weeks (we bought a seat for the baby). has anyone successfully used a convertible car seat on a plane? we took a regular infant car seat on the last flight, and we were able to strap it into the seat no problem on one flight where we were in Economy Plus (more room between seats). but the other flight we got stuck in regular Economy and couldn't make it fit. now i'm nervous about taking the bigger car seat, but he's getting to be too big for the infant one.
on another note: has anyone used the C.A.R.E.S. harness that's approved by the FAA with an infant? our baby is 7 months plus, but i don't know if it would be comfy for him to be just harnessed into the regular airplane seat in one of those harnesses.
