    Northwest and carseats

    Has anyone flown Northwest and used a carseat?If so what kind and were you able to preboard without a hassle? Is there anything else I should know about Northwest? I'm wondering because we're flying across country next month on this airline. Thanks

    I've only flown Southwest with a car seat and they let me pre-board. Try giving Northwest a call and ask what their policies are regarding pre-boarding and if they differ by airport.

    BTW, good for you for taking your car seat and using it !

    I have flown NW multiple times with my Roundabout... At your first boarding they check to see th FAA sticker on the side of the seat, then they wrap a hot pink luggage type tag on the bottom. Every time you board after that they just look for the tag.
    Enjoy your trip!
