We use it as our travel stroller. It is very sturdy. It will survive getting roughed up by airport handling. My kids (5, 3) can easily get up and down from it. The strap to adjust the recline of the seats is extremily easy to adjust. There is plenty of room under the seats for carry ons. It's not the easiest to steer, especially when it's loaded, but it does the trick. You can fold it one handed. People have been impressed at how easy it folds. My only complaint is how the canopy is attached. It unclips everytime I close it.
