    Headwise or sureride for plane

    So I probably should have thought about this before as our flight is tomorrow, but I'm flying for the first time with my 2 year old. I can bring either our graco headwise or evenflo sureride with me on the plane. Any pros or cons for either of them? I know the sureride is lighter, but I thought I saw a post that you can't use the try for it on the plane. I'm planning to FF her for the flight, but she's still RF in the car and that's how I plan to install the seat when we get to the rental. Too bad she doesn't fit in the CCO anymore!

    Id go sureride because its lightweight, however the gracos beltpath not being behind the back would be a feature on a longer flight.

    I would go with the Sureride for the weight. I doubt you can put the tray table down with either seat.
