Thanks for this referral. I had thought about those services (you know, where driver is waiting for you at arrivals with a sign) but didn't know what they're called or which companies they were. I don't necessarily need the greeting, etc., but I checked their site as well as their TA reviews and seems like this might be just right for us in terms of reliability, safety, and service. Pricey yes, but I guess you get what you pay for? I'll definitely include this as an option! Also, big thanks to amyg1975 for the MSSS warning....I was seriously considering them, yikes! BadPinkTink, that looks like a marvelous piece of equipment....our baby will only be 10 months by the trip happens so not quite big enough to use this, but I'm going to keep this on my radar when she is big enough.Lansky provides car seats and they are highly recommended by others on these boards. We used them last time for our trip with no issues.
Thanks for bringing this up....yes, if we were bringing our car seat (which is highly likely at this point) then we'd definitely use it on the plane. I already booked three plane tix so we were not going to have her as a "lap baby" even though we originally were not planning on bringing the car seat. our reason for booking her own ticket was 1.) for the extra space on the plane and 2.) to more or less guarantee no one would sit in our row (since we're flying SWA where seats are not assigned).I'm guessing your daughter is flying on your lap as opposed to having her own seat? In that case, unless you have the original box for the car seat there isn't really a safe way to check it anyway. The ideal situation from a safety perspective is to install the seat on the plane and have her in it. Checking a car seat leaves the seat with an unknown history and at risk of damage that would not necessarily be visible. If you're not taking her seat the best option is DRE.
Hopefully you can get something similar. My niece loved it, she had her snacks, toys and books in it for the plane and then it was so handy for the rental car.BadPinkTink, that looks like a marvelous piece of equipment....our baby will only be 10 months by the trip happens so not quite big enough to use this, but I'm going to keep this on my radar when she is big enough.
Here's a link to LGB ground transportationWe have always flown into Orange County and then take a taxi or Uber/Lyft to DLR. We tend to come either later at night or mid morning so we miss rush hour traffic. Currently, Southwest rates are through the roof and I can save quite a bit to fly into Long Beach. I am wondering how much longer, and how much more expensive, is the transportation cost to get from the airport to DLR
