We travelled from Gatwick U.K to Rhodes, Greece last year with our 9 month old baby. We made several phonecalls to the airline before we travelled to make sure that the car seat we bought specifically to use on the plane was suitable. We were told it was. On the way into the plane they took the car seat from us and insisted that my baby was to be on my lap for takeoff even though we had bought her own seat on the plane to use the car seat on. I was in tears as we took off, worried in case we had to emergency stop and I crushed my baby. The stewardess called me stupid and said that could never happen!I was prepared to leave the plane but my family insisted we carried on.I still have yet to find any car seat in the U.K that has an FFA sticker on it.
