I'm looking into this stroller due to the Black Friday sale.

I was looking at the folded dimensions and it's 21"x17.7"8.5 . So that fits within ElAl's hand luggage requirements as posted online but not most major airlines (such as Delta, American Airlines, United). Has anyone used this stroller when flying and could chime in? I guess I could gate check a stroller but that kind of defeats the purpose of a compact fold stroller.

Thanks!

I flew to Israel with my Joolz Aer on ELAL. Everyone had to give in their stroller at the gate, even the yo-yos. I think one person took their stroller on board- a GB pockit. I think it was instead of a hand luggage though. Elal usually makes us hand in the stroller but we get it back right after coming off from the plane. And the advantage of the joolz aer is that you can fold it with one hand right by the gate and it’s lightweight, smooth and compact which is great when traveling.

I don’t see the difference between handing it in at gate and overhead bin.
If it’s a car seat stroller it has the advantage of that. Otherwise just hand it in.

The difference is not having to wait when you land and not having the possibility of Stroller breaking or getting lost in transit.

I am almost sure we bur it in overhead bin of frontier. it has a cool carry strap so easy to take on board discretely.

The difference is that you can push it down the aisles!! I flew to Israel with my joolz aer and I blessed it every step of the way. It is an amazing amazing carriage! And being able to put your baby in the carriage when boarding and leaving the aircraft when you have your other luggage and other kids to handle is the best thing ever

Interesting that Elal made everyone give in their strollers..

The weight of the joolz aer and the easy fold are really drawing me. I guess I have to decide if the ability to stow on the plane itself is a make or break factor.

It's amazing that you can push it down the aisle.

Which airline did you fly with?

We flew Turkish, but every airline has to let you, if it’s made for flying like the yo-yo, the aer, and the bugaboo butterfly, it fits down the aisles

I have a mountain buggy nano and definitely does not fit down most airline aisles but still worth every penny.

I don’t know about the nano, but the 3 I mentioned do fit, Abbas were specifically made that way

I have flown a few times with the Aer.
It wheels down the aisle (even in the narrow jet blue 3-3 plane) and folds into a small size that fits perfectly into the overhead locker.

Some airlines make a fuss but 99% know that it’s a “yo yo” like stroller and can go overhead

If there a lot of families on the flight there may not have been room for all those strollers. You have to realize that even though they fit, the strollers are a piece of baggage in addition to a carryon and personal item. Overheard bin space is limited. So there’s not always room.

That makes sense, thanks.
