    Question need advice on flying 12hrs from L.A. to Switzerland with 18mts old twins

    good day,

    I am looking for people that travelled with swiss airlines (or probably any other international long distance flight) and small children with their convertible carseats. we're just trying to get an idea what to expect and see if we're missing out on anything important.

    we are flying with our boy/girl twins which will be 18months by the time of departure, september.
    I have 2 confirmed bulkhead seats for and 2 seats right behind those, hoping when we check-in, we'll get the whole bulkhead row...they won't give the 2 other bulhead seats to me now, they are blocked until check-in at airport. so at least with the bulkhead, the kicking in the front row would not be an issue, also the legroom should be fine for them, and us
    the 2 blocked bulkhead seats are apparently not given out until right before departure, for possible families with small infants....

    I am just hoping now that if there would be too many families with small infants, that they won't take away the 2 bulkhead we have, could they do that?
    the airline's response on carseat was following:
    maximum width and length of BASE of carseat: 15.7" x 15.7"...good I called because website said 17.3"

    so with the new info of the 15.7", our choices for conv carseats are wider, yeah, our kids are now 14 months old (twins) and barely 19lbs but just exceeded the length of our snugrides, so we are getting convertibles now...looking at the Evenflo Advance Triumph and the Cosco Scenera...

    from what I read on this forum, the Cosco would be easier to travel with? I do want seats that they can use for a very long time...I don't mind about bulky for travel, we need them in switzerland for our rental car anyways...

    thanks and any input appreciated...
