    We used a carrier to take 8week old dd on a domestic flight. The fussing over bags and tickets and boarding etc was made all that much easier with her snugly in the carrier. But yes we had to take her out for the flight itself. I ended up bf'ing during take off and landing, the attendants were more than happy for her to sit facing me as long as her seatbelt was still on. But once we landed, she was back in and I had my hands free to take a bag etc.

    I would still take it even though it can't be used on the plane so much

    I've always flown with a carrier. Took little one out for take off and landing and wore bub during the flight. At one point, I strapped bub to the front of me and we both had a sleep. It also gave me an opportunity to have a walk up and down the cabin to settle when little one was very small. I recently flew (last week) with my now 14 month old and wouldn't be without my Ergo.

    I did but they made me Take H out at security then clip him back up plus not allowed wear on plane etc so silly in my eyes if your holding them anyway! More hassle then helpful :/

    I wasn't aware that they couldn't be used on the plane and have never been asked to take DD out on all of our flights. Interesting

    Sorry to gate crash the thread but is the security protocol the same for a wrap?

    I don't think there is a problem wearing bubs in the carriers during the flight but they need to be seated with you and the seatbelt on for take off and landing.

    Thanks everybody. I was expecting it might be an issue at security so I'm planning to keep the ergo in my hand luggage until we're through and then I'll put it on. I'm glad other people have still found them useful even with the restrictions on when they can be used. I'll let you know how we get on. :-)

    Yep because they need to be able to see you don't have anything hidden between the two of you.

    The other thing to consider is a pram/stroller as you can take these to the gate and then they get it taken to one of the baggage guys to put on the plane.

    However I was made take ds out of it on our flight to melbourne and fold it up to go through the scanner but then on the way home we just wheeled it through (ds wasn't in it this time though as I was prepared for having to fold it up so not sure if they would have let him stay in or not).

    I've been able to wear my hug-a-bub style stretchy through (take DS out) as it has no bulk. I imagine the bulkier, padded carriers would usually need to be scanned.
