    Flying to Canada on 787-9 and 777 from Switzerland - 8,5 hour flight

    I'm hoping for some advice since I'm really confused about what to do:

    I have a 21 month old, 85cm, 12kg, that I would like to have in a car seat on the flight and in a rental car in Canada.

    From what I understand, I have two options. I can buy and use the CARES system on the flight to canada, but then I'll need to figure out a carseat in Canada. In which case, I'd like to be able to use it on the flight home. Most of the car seats I've seen on bestbuy.ca say they're certified for airline use, but they are big. Most are more than 45cm wide and I have no idea how to find out which will fit on the flight. Do we need to buy a premium economy seat for the carseat to fit?

    There's another option of buying a carseat that I can buy here "Britax Römer Eclipse" with a 43cm width that will work on the airplane. From what I understand, I cannot use this seat as soon as we get to Canada and it's only got a 3-point harness. I would prefer a rear-facing seat in the car. So this car seat ensures we end up with two car seats on the flight home.

    So, does anyone have any tips?
