Perhaps that's a good idea. I love the Radian both in the car and on the airplane but rear facing can be a bit trickier on an aircraft.

I saw it on a Marathon and they had to pick it up (that's a pretty large seat but will fit on a decent-sized aircraft). Instead of purchasing this expensive product, I actually did better with a all-metal luggage cart and using an extra bungee cord to secure it. Works great and my seat weighs 25lbs. My dd can even...
