Good travel pushchair suitable from birth?

I'm looking to buy a travel pushchair that would be suitable from birth. My DS is 4 months now, but I really do want to have a pushchair that can recline to a horizontal position, so he can sleep comfortably in it. We already have a really fab pram/pushchair for everyday use (Mutsy 4Rider Light , which I'm really happy with, but it's a bit heavy for going on holiday.
Now, all we need is a lightweight, easiy to fold, reclinable to horizontal pushchair for travel. Ideally, I'd prefer for it to be rear-facing, but this seems to be rare with travel pushchairs.
I've looked at a few, such as the Maclaren Techno XT - this is fine and is probably one of the better options, but I'm not a big fan of the 'horn'-like handles hmm. Are they really as good as a single?
I really like the Baby Jogger City Mini, but am not sure if it's the best for travel. The fold is great, but is it a bit too heavy for travelling? What do you think?
Other suggestions?

We have a Silver Cross cheapie - it's just over 100 quid. Reclines low as he was 5 months when we got it. Very basic and not that robust, but good for planes/Eurostar.

Has anyone taken the BJ City Mini on holidays (i.e. on airplanes)? How is it for travelling?

i think the xt is a fab pushchair, the tilting hood and uv shade is great for sunny hols or for light rain without using a r/c. they are great for young babies and older toddlers they go on forever.

i've had lots of maclarens, i've had four xt's in the last year, i sell them then end up with another!!
