onestepahead.com sells a Back pack that you strap your carseat on to so you
can easily carry it around the airport---we never check our carseat, if they
lose it with the luggage, then we are stuck when we get to our destination
airport.  we always carry it on and check it at the plane door.

bon voyage!
