    Default Strider plus at the airport

    Hi , have you taken one with you on a plane? Do they let you take it to the gate? How did you secure the seats when there is no travel bag to secure it in the hold ?

    I don't want to buy a cheap flimsy double as I have a 5 week old, 21 month old and a 4 year old .

    Anyone done this ? Thanks xx

    I haven't taken a strider plus but I have a city select. If you fly qantAs they have bags to put your pram in otherwise look around for a big enough bag to put you pram in with seats not attached. We weren't allowed to take the pram to the gate we had to check it in atleast half hour before hand.

    I haven't taken it to the gate, but have checked it in as oversized baggage several times.

    To secure the seat DH does some amazing knotty rope thingy all around both parts.

    as far as I know, the scanners won't pick up on the bogan alert so it should be ok.

    *disclaimer: I am in a happy relationship with my strider plus... just making a tongue in cheek comment which was birthed from a ridiculous recent thread...peace

    Default Strider plus at the airport

    I've flown with big prams often and personally I bubble wrap before I go and then check into special baggage then collect and unwrap at the destination.
    Reason is planes won't replace if it is damaged anymore so I make sure it will be robust for the plane and baggage handlers.
    I use slings and the terminals strollers while at the airport.

    Used baby carriers/hire strollers for the gate, and put the strider through in the heavy duty plastic airport bags. Had to go oversized.

    You will have to check it in at oversized luggage. they usually let you take an umbrella style stroller to the gate tho.

    This is what I found with our old pram on Qantas and Virgin. Qantas accidently sent our pram on the wrong plane and gave us a loan stroller which at the time was a MAJOR pain as it didnt recline so DD couldnt nap. But they were prompt in bringing it to our hotel when they got it back at least.
