Has anyone used the Graco Contender 65 Convertable Car Seat on Southwest flights?

Has anyone used the Graco Contender 65 Convertable Car Seat (http://www.gracobaby.com/en-US/1927062#) on Southwest flights? Does it fit between the arm rests? Walmart claims it is 18.5" but as that is not from the manufacturer, I worry it is not going to fit the seat. Any recommendations is appreciated!

The Graco link in your post showed a little over 20” looks big - how old is your child? We get great use of our CARES harness for a 3 year old and check the car seat.

@wishinonstars86, I have not used that car seat on a SW flight, but you can look here to get the seat dimensions.  

 

That said, I echo the recommendation of the CARES harness!

 

Finally, check out this Knowledge Base article about flying with kids.

 

Good luck!
