trace, do you mean your son? (DS)
I would put him in the hold. Too much hassle as hand luggage.

I think you can take it as hand luggage if it is switched off during the flight.

I guess you'd need it on a bored holiday

I think you can take it as hand luggage, and use it on the flight, except not during take-off and landing. Worth checking with the airline though.

LOL GINGER BEAR, just reread this, yes i could take ds in suitcase.

i only want to take because when getting ready to go out on a night he gets restless

gingerbear, you had your blood tests?

Have done this. Do not put it in your suitcase under any circumstances as if it gets damaged or stolen you are responsible!!.

You can use the DVD player on the aircraft except for take off and landing. Check with the airline in question re their policy though. Generally speaking policies re electronic equipment are the same across the board.

We took ours on the plane, godsend with ryanair as they don't exactly have seat back tv's .

Due to the weight you really wouldn't want to put it in hold luggage.

We used it everynight on holiday as it was to cold to sit out and the kids were a bit young to be out roaming about later on, so we watched a movie every night, and once kids were in be d we watched another one as there wasn't a telly anyway.
