My husband is going to bring my daughter from my parents home, but she just grew out of previous carseat( the bassinet), I am wondering if my husband can take a carseat on the way to my parents home? I mean, on the plane. I know if my daughter is also on the plane, there won't be any problem, but on the way to my parents home, my daughter is not with my husband.

As a flight attendant for a major carrier; yes, you can take it with you but they will check it at the gate. They are not allowed in the overhead compartments, only in seats with a child in it. :D

Heads up, depending on the airlines' policy, it may be considered one of your two carry-ons.

What I would do is just call the airline and ask. Don't give your name just say you had a question. I am thinking that you can. There are many parents that adopt and travel one way with a carseat and no child, so I see this as no different. Carseats and strollers fly free and don't count as baggage. You can have the carseat checked when you check the rest of your luggage.
