Air Canada and car seats
From the Air Canada site, it does say you can bring a carseat at no charge. From the info online it looks like you can gate check a stroller but seems to indicate that the carseat has to be checked with the regular luggage. We are bringing a smaller stroller and the carseat doesn't attach to the stroller.
For those that have checked carseats, how did you pack it? We've only got about a week to go, but I see some travel bags that Walmart sells (although they are red bags that say "gate check" in big letters they don't seem to have anything else). Not sure if I should buy one, but I have to decide soon.
I'd so much prefer to gate check it, but if we can't how do you best protect it in the hopes it isn't damaged before getting to your location? This is our first trip with the little one and I have no experience with this.
Never say never
