    Chase for air travel?

    Would an evenflo Chase be a decent seat for air travel? We leave on Sunday for a 4hr flight to Cuba (from Canada). My understanding is we will not be using the seat once we land, as we'll travel by large tour bus to our resort and it is rare to find a taxi (or other vehicle) that has any seat belts.

    Our daughter is 23.5months old right now and will remain rear facing in her radian for a long time coming but I'd be okay with a forward facing only seat for airplane travel (and ground travel later on while traveling).

    I have a fears of bringing our radian...if it somehow got dirty or ruined while lugging it about and then we'd have no seat once we return home. The Chase is on sale for $40 at the nearby Walmart right now so I am tempted to grab it and not have to worry about it while traveling.

    Will it work for air travel? Should we just brave bringing the radian?
    We will likely have an old stroller on the trip there to put our seat in/on in the airport. But we expect to just leave the stroller behind so we'd have to carry the seat on the return leg. It's a one plane trip so shouldn't be too bad.

    Thoughts?

    Yes, the chase works fine for air travel. I've used it before.

    Yeah, it works. If you take the cupholders off (or just leave them off), the tray table will be usable.

    If you have a rolling bag, bring along a bungee so you can strap your carseat to it through the airport on the return trip.
