Unfortunately those are the two options. We have one seat for a child and one for a lap rider (I know, not ideal...neither is visiting my in-laws when we don't have money or desire to). But I am bringing both seats, gate checking one and taking the other on the plane. Chances are it will be for my older boy and my younger will be worn on my chest (except during take off/landing, as I know they get weird about it). But either seat will be installed FF. But I am wondering if anyone has a suggestion as for which one fits better on the seat, which one might be the better choice for installing? Thanks.

I have not taken either seat on a plane, but have flown with my daughter. The Nauti is so heavy and quite wide...I'm thinking it might be a nightmare on a plane in just about every aspect. The MyRide is bulky, but might work better...but that is just my guess.

Is there any way you can pick up a Scenera for the trip ($39 at Walmart)? That is what I took, and I'm so glad I did. It was a breeze to install and light enough that I could carry it down the aisle with one hand.

I would imagine that the nauti would allow more space for the person sitting next to the carseat. The myride is super wide.... I second the scenera idea though!

We took our Nauti on the plane. It was heavy to carry but we made it work. The only issue was that how the belts buckle it ended up smack in the middle of SS's lower back. He said it was somewhat uncomfortable but he didn't complain too much. We changed planes and tried using an extender on the second plane but we were in such a rush I didn't have enough time to really try and get to work right. I sat next to the nauti on all flights (total of 4 round trip) and I had plenty of room. We put the nauti next to the window.
