    Sorry didn't explain that well, I stopped using the baby jogger bag and just used a big bin liner. Fingers crossed for a sleeping bub and a smooth flight! Have fun!

    Default Baby jogger city mini as plane luggage

    We take ours straight to the gate, depending on the country your fly in/to/from you sometimes get it back at the gate, if not you get it back at baggage, we just fold, it's been on about 10 flights and not damaged yet. So flying between UK and USA and within the US we have always gotten it back at that gate but flying to OZ and some other European countries we don't get it until baggage claim. Heaven when you get it at the gate to go through customs!

It has been bumped around but not damaged. It is our travel stroller so we are much more relaxed with it than our bugaboo. We have the travel bag but the one that goes with it from baby jogger - note that you have to take the wheels off to put it in this bag, I found that really annoying so switched to the bin liner. Enjoy your trip!
    Well you just convinced me to put it in a bag when I hand it in at the gate! But it's our travel stroller as well so not that precious about it!

    Qantas. The bag worked really well - it was worth the money ($96).

    Don't think I would spend to buy the bag, they can wrap it up. I'm thinking international flights

    I have the bag for my GT as well. It is excellent.

    Having taken a stroller wrapped just in plastic instead when I flew to Hawaii (b4 I had the mini gt), the bag protects the pram so much better. I also put baby blankets etc for my portacot in there.

    The bag sounds pricey but it's really good. It's padded to protect the pram and has a shoulder strap for carrying.

    The rain cover on the other hand I've never used... The canopy is huge and provides enough protection from light rain. I'm not going to walk in pouring rain myself let alone push the pram hence the cover is kind of pointless.
