I hadn't really thought about weight, I guess that could cause issues. My kids have outgrown their seats by height long (like a year or so) before they reached the max weight limits.
LOL! I'm totally the opposite. :D I babywore my 1 y/o daughter through the airport last time and it just made everything so easy! I loved it. I'll do it again. Strollers seem like such a hassle to me, especially with stairs, crowds, getting on the plane, etc. I just want to be up on my feet and take off. Nothing to trip anybody with. (Or maybe I'm just clumsy because I used to trip backwards over people's strollers all. the. time. before I had kids. I wasn't concerned about what was behind me before stepping back because I didn't have to worry about carrying someone else.)
I would consider getting a cheapie umbrella stroller and having the 5 year old push the 1 year old. We did that when I flew with a 3/5 year old. The 5 year old who has sensory issues/PDD issues enjoyed hyper focusing on pushing sister and freed up my hands. Having the 5 year old have a "job" seriously changed the dynamic for the win. The CARES you can rent cheaply. Ask around and see if you can find a radian to borrow from someone. We had a radian and folded it in HALF and packed it. Then bungee a backless booster to your luggage.
