    Flying with car seat.

    I will be flying with my 2 1/2 year old daughter this April. I have a Evenflo Truimph 65 Dlx and I am wondering if it is going to fit into the airplace seat. Any input/suggestions/experiences would be greatly appreciated.

    Re: Flying with car seat.

    It'll fit. You may want to put the armrest up. I'd probably install it rear facing, as she rides in the car, so that way you have more room yourself.

    If you travel often, I'd probably get a dedicated travel seat. If not, it's fine to travel with. What will you use to transport it through the airports?
