We just flew with our Citi Mini Double GT. I opted to check it in as I didnt want to shlep it through the airport. It traveled really well. I used large zip ties to securely fasten the stroller so there was no way it would open enroute. I also fastned the front wheels together, to make sure they didn't swing around and get damaged.

We used a snap and go for the airport and to shlep the infant carseat.

I ordered a cosco booster seat from Amazon for $12, and shipped it to my destination.

All in all I was very hapy with the arrangements.

Flying to LA soon with delta glitch tickets. We will be taking along a 5 month old as a lap child. We have a UB vista and plan on taking it along with the car seat and adapter. Can we gate check the stroller?  For out first flight we are in business class. What do we do if there are no extra seats for the car seat? Can we gate check the car seat too?For our return trip we chose 2 aisle seats with the hope that the middle seat will stay empty for the car seat.

I don't know with Delta but I just flew today with United and I gate checked my UB Vista with the bassinet and a car seat.

You can gate check the stroller.
may need to see if you can bring the car seat on board.

I flew American on Sunday from ord, and they told us that they have a new rule for bringing strollers as carry ons. Apparently you can only bring strollers that are under 21 lbs, otherwise they need to be checked. Ours was a citi mini and was like a pound too much. We got a supervisor to allow it, but not sure how often they will allow.
its about 3 years old, that rule

Does a car seat need to be in the window seat on delta?
ive neve been on a flight that allowed a car seat to block a passenger from getting off on case of emergency, so if its 3 3 config, it would need to be at the window

Does anyone have a recommendation for a light_weight forward facing car seat for travel other than the Scenera? The Cosco Scenera has a 40lb weight limit and my 2yr old is exactly 40lbs (yes, he is a big boy). He normally uses a britax marathon but its really big to schlep through the airport and plane...
