    Travel with a Britax Pavilion or get a new lightweight car seat? Which car seat carrier?

    I have a Britax Pavilion and I'm wondering if I should purchase another, more lightweight car seat for my son for air travel; and if so, which one? We average about 12-16 flights per year. I'll be traveling alone with him in a few weeks and, while I can do it, I'd rather not lug the Pavilion through the plane while managing my 2yo. Also, does anyone have experience with the Gogo Baby Travelmate, Travelmate Deluxe or Britax Travel cart? I'm trying to decide which one would be best to use when hauling the seat through the airport and onto the airplane. Thank you for any input, it's really appreciated!

    I am a fan of a plain old luggage cart (Magna Cart is a good one) or the Traveling Toddler if you are using carry-on luggage.

    I also like specific seats for planes, either because they are lightweight OR because of the way they install. I REALLY like the Radian for planes, especially if it is to be used FF. It just works SO well with the tray table (though you do need a belt extender to make it comfortable and usable).
