Wow, thanks everyone! I think we have a layover on the big island and then on to Maui.

Here are my current thoughts of our options, not wanting to spend any more money than we have to. We will probably just bring the Radian and Coccoro and hope that there are extra seats on one or both flights. If not, we can gate check the Coccoro and hope they are nice to it. What makes the Scenera better to bring than the Coccoro? I'd rather not spend more money on a Scenera if the Coccoro will probably be fine.

The other option is than my mom offered to buy the Go in exchange for Radian for her car. (DS1 will outgrow the SS2 sometime soon and she doesn't have tether anchors in her car.) I'm just not sure that I want the Go to be DS1's permanent seat since I have nowhere to try it out first. Does that make sense?

Well my suggestion, the reason for the Scenara was if your older child could use it on the plane and pack the Radian in the overhead (to avoid being tossed by baggage mishandlers).

I have no idea if your bigger child will fit in the Coccoro, if he/she will, then yes, take that set for the larger child for the plane, and set the Radian for the baby, and the Radian can go in the overhead bin just fine ;)
