    Question Sunshine Kids Radian (on a plane)

    I have a few questions regarding the Radian while flying on an airplane. (sorry in advance for the 20 questions )

    First and most important, is this a good seat for the airplane for FF?

    Is the tray table usable, and can the tray be pulled all the way forward to the seat( so kid isnt reaching forward to the tray)?

    Is there any reason the XT is better over the 80 or 65 other than personal preferance?

    Once installed where is the seat belt buckle in relation to the seat?

    Can either the airplane seat or the radian be reclined for sleeping once the seat has been installed.
    Thank you for all your help.

    1 - we have had very good luck with ffing radian on an airplane.
    2 - yes the tray table is useable. Only seat I've ever had the tray table to work with.
    3 - It depends. The XT has added SIP wings. The only real difference between the 65 and 80 are the infant insert, cover options, and weight limit. Most kids won't make it to 65lbs in either seat.
    4 - No

    LOVE that it can be used with the tray, big +

    FWIW, I've installed it RF on 2 flights, not sure if your LO is small enough to RF in it. I know it doesn't fit in all planes, but it does in some.
    Lisa, mama to L (6 yrs, 44#, 50" Regent/Parkway SG), E (4 yrs, 35#, 43" FF in a Radian/Como), and R (4 mo, 18#, 26" riding in a Wizard/Blvd)
