Travel Safety

Can someone please recommend a good, light car seat that will fit on a plane? Short of calling the airline, who I expect will not be helpful, I am at a loss. We will be flying to Florida in April and two year old Harry, thanks to my frequent flyer miles, will have his own seat. I have googled endlessly on this topic, and I am just looking for some reliable advice about what to get. We have a Britax Marathon now, but it is big and heavy and we are too lazy to take it out of the car. I am hoping to find a cheap but safe one that we can take with us for Florida in April and Chicago in June. Have any of you had good luck with a certain kind?

I have an Eddie Bauer High Back Carseat for my 2year old daughter which is not too heavy. We have taken several trips with it and have had no problem. I'd also reccommend going to babies r us and getting a carseat bag, which has wheels on it so you don't have to carry it through the airport

The Graco Comfort Sport has been our saving grace. Now that we've transitioned our daughter to a booster seat, I have no idea what we'll do when we travel.
