Do you still put a 9 month old rear facing on a plane?

her car seat is convertible and I am bringing it just incase they have an extra seat... But I dont know if it will fit rear facing the proper way it supposed to be level.

  • Yes. Our carseat fit just fine in the rear facing position. The flight attendants will help you install it.

  • honestly, i'd just check the seat at the gate. IMO it would be more trouble than its worth.

  • And so you know, they give the elderly and families with young children the option to board first. I always boarded first when my son and I flew a couple times.

  • I am not sure if they are going to let me board first because I am flying standby because my step mom works for the airline. This is my first time flying with my DD

  • They won't even let you take it on unless they KNOW there's going to be an empty seat and even then they'll make you pay full price for it.

  • Yes, it needs to go rear facing.
    Did you know that seats on Air Force transports face backwards when possible? Backwards is safer.

  • Car seats: A seat may be purchased for the infant. If the infant is not restrained in a seat certified for motor vehicle or aircraft use, the adult must hold the infant during taxi, takeoff, landing, any time the seatbelt sign is illuminated and when instructed to do so by the flight crew.


    Its says motor vehicle OR aircraft use
