    FAA Links for info on using car seats:

Regulatory Requirements Regarding Accommodation of Child Restraint Systems http://www.faa.gov/other_visit/aviation_industry/airline_operators/airline_safety/info/all_infos/media/2009/info09002.pdf


Earning mileage: Infants (who don't pay for a full ticket) are not eligible to earn miles.

Luggage: Some people report that their friend or parent flew and got lucky. However, it's best to check with the Airline (on their website or calling them), BEFORE packing your suitcases. Here are some helpful links:
[/list]

Proof: Some airlines require proof of age. Rather bring along some kind of proof, and not get stuck because of an gate agent or TSA guard that had a bad day.

Infants are cute.

Please help with this wiki.

My son actually is just over 2, but my question relates to little kids. I have one pnr with 3 family members, and a second for just my 2 year old. Can they give me any problems with that? Should I call up to "link" the 2 pnrs, or just check in like everything is normal? I had to fudge his birthday to buy a ticket for just him without an adult on the PNR...

I just rented from hertz in Phoenix. Car seat was wrapped in a plastic so I thought it was new.
It had stains across it. Food stuck in the buckle and it smelt bad. Got refunded for it at the end but was probably pretty unhygienic.

Do you have a doona? Or if you are bringing a carriage can a car seat fit under it somehow?

seem to recall similar AAwful experience. with many HUCAs no results. On the plus side, I think their unofficial policy is to block out seat next to people with infants, which depending on your chilld's age, can be better..

Flying from EWR to FLL on JetBlue with a 6 month old...I bought my daughter a ticket and we plan to use the Doona. Is there anything i need to know about taking a 6 month old on a flight? Do we need a Birth Cert?
I am reading about Foward/rear facing car seats...Is rear facing car seat better?

It's recommended that you give the child a bottle or pacifier during take off and landing to help with the pressure changes.
It is not unwise to take a BC but IME no one asks for it.
Generally accepted wisdom is that rear facing car seats are safer, keep in mind that some planes are so tight in Y that it can be difficult to have it rear facing

We have the version for a car seat and it's very flimsy

This one is the best IMO,  as it folds with 1 push into almost a carry on size and has a Pull handle, and can even hold an infant car seat with a separate strap no adapters needed
