can you take your convertible carseat on an airplane?

I'm traveling in next month by plane on a 3 hour flight with my 9 month old. We will be renting a car, so it's obvious i need a car seat. Will I be charged extra for this? On top of that I will be taking an umbrella storller as well.

  • you can check the carseat into baggage, or take it on the plane but you'll have to buy an extra set & starp it in

  • OK thanks very much ladies. I'll just check it with my bags instead since I don't want to buy another seat

  • During extreme turbulence a lap baby can become a projectile. It is much safer to have the baby use the carseat on the plane; it has an added advantage of being a familiar space in an unfamiliar place.
