Does anyone know how you get a carseat on a plane? Does it have to be in a carseat bag? Or does it just get check in under the plane?



I knw nothing expect that us airways is free of charge for his carseat to travel.

DO not check a carseat! That makes it considered crashed. Just buy another plane ticket and take it on with you.

take it to the gate, if there's extra seats you can take it on. ive always checked mine at the ticket counter though.

You can bring it with you to the gate. They can do plane side pick up and drop off. Right as you get on the plane leave it as you get off it will be in the same area.

People still do it but it's too risky. That's a safety device for your child in a collision. If you saw how they handle luggage you wouldn't question it! Lol

What seat is it? If you search amazon there are a lot of rolling car seat carriers. Some may be universal

Oh yeah wow that's a beast. I'd look up on Google how that fits in plane seats...if I were you I'd just buy a cheap $40 scenera to use for the flight.

OP your car seat is NOT FAA approved for use on an airplane. So you'll have to purchase a different seat.
