    Best Lightweight Carseat for Plane?

    I am looking for recommendations for a lightweight, inexpensive car seat to use for my 2 year old on an upcoming international flight and in a rental car upon arrival. Afterwards, I will use it occasionally for carpools. I have an old Cosco Scenera that I once purchased for a similar purpose, but it has long since expired. I am looking for something that is equivalent but wondered if newer items have come out that would be better.

    A new Scenera might be a good choice, but there are also some Evenflo products that cost a bit more but are a little more versatile and easy to work with. For example the Evenflo Maestro can convert to a booster later, which might be helpful for your "spare" carpool seat.

    First things first, though -- which airline(s) will you be using? Some non-US airlines are much more restrictive about carseats. Also, how big (height/weight) is the 2-year-old and will she be forward- or rear-facing in the car at the destination?
