Does anyone have used thi Child Airplane Travel Harness - Cares Safety Restraint System - in a air trip?

Hi My name is Laura Nino. I will travel oversees in December and thinking in trying this CARES safety restrain system instead of bringing my car seat to the flight. Does anyone has used it? What opinion do you have of it? I think is a little bit pricy and would like to know others opinions about it. Thanks!
