In my opinion: bring the car seat!
-Buy a car seat trolley. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B005CNEQK0/ref=mp_s_a_1_1_a_it?qid=1463885954&sr=8-1&keywords=carseat+trolley&pi=SY200_QL40 (sorry for formatting on mobile). It basically turns the carseat into a stroller.
It will keep them in their own space and you can relax. We were arriving from out of the country so we had to go through customs and the whole 9 yards and it kept her happy for 99% of try time.

-Your baby will be comfortable. Bring their normal car toys/snacks or whatever. It'll be no different than being in the backseat of the car.

-It is big. It'll give them the ability to actually kick the seat in front of them. But personally I'd rather feel little feet tapping my back than potential screaming

-It adds time to boarding and disembarking. Takes approximately 3-5 minutes of having to unstrap it from the trolley and hook it into the seat. But sit at the back of the plane if you can (southwest should be relatively empty at the back) so you're not holding people up.

I know we took our daughter on a 2 hour flight last year (when she was about 14 months) and it was a looooong 2 hours with climbing all over us and fussing. We took her this year on the same flight with a car seat and it was like she wasn't even there for most of it...she slept for at least a solid hour.
I literally just got back today from the aforementioned flight, and I promise it was a breeze compared to no car seat. Worst case scenario is you have to check the car seat from the plane (it's not a big deal to do it that way I've done it with strollers before).

I just flew JetBlue so I'm not sure about Southwest, but if you get there early and board as soon as you can I'm sure you can get decent seats for your situation.

Good luck!

"Unfortunately, the car seat we have is a convertible, so it’s pretty heavy and not meant to be carried around. "

FYI you can get a dolly to wheel the carseat around the airport, and the kid can sit in it too. We travel with a convertible seat often and it's fine. (one time we forgot the dolly and I had to carry the seat one handed to and from the plane, do not recommend that but not the end of the world)

It really is a huge help to have them in the seat on the plane. I don't travel often but I bought a used lighter and cheaper seat to use for one trip earlier this year.

I also bought this:

It won't get used often, but it was soooooo nice to have in the airport, partly because the kids can sit in their seat while you pull it.

We use these with their car seats: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005CNEQK0

But if we weren't taking car seats, we would for sure use a double stroller.

That's awesome!

Since its $500 though, I will add on a suggestion that would be not quite as cool, but much cheaper. You can buy car seat travel carts, like this, this, or this, and use them with the car seat you already have.

You should check with the airline, but if your kid is under 2 and has his own seat, I'm pretty sure he must be in an FAA approved car seat or a CARES vest. I prefer the car seat, because my kid is a squirmer. But YMMV.

As for lugging the car seat around the airport, you will have to do that yourself. No one will bring it to the gate for you. But you can invest in one of these, which is basically a luggage trolly for your car seat. We used it with our monkey on our last trip, and it worked great. If it were me, I'd put my little in a carrier and tote the big one around with the car seat carrier. Check the double stroller and infant car seat as baggage (it's free). Much easier way to move around the airport.

As for layovers, I avoid them at all costs. More chances for ear aches going up and coming down. More chances for delays every time you take off and land. Usually more than doubles travel time. Just not ever worth it in my book.

Hope that helps. Good luck on your trip!
