I did (with EasyJet) a couple of years ago. Made sure the cosy toes was attached properly as was worried I'd lose it on the way there and cleared everything out from under it. Then it had a luggage sticker on it, took it to the plane steps and it was then put with the luggage and at the other end it was with the suitcases-no problem at all.
