The only problem we ran into was when we attempted to fit the carriers under the seats in front of us on the airplane. As per the instructions from Sleepypod and the diagrams on the website and on the fliers included with the carriers, we tried to fold up the ends of the carriers so they would fit under the seats. They were nearly impossible to fold up! The bottom of the carrier was so stiff that we couldn't fold them up. Instead, we had to wedge the carriers in at a slight angle. Thankfully the flight attendants didn't mention anything. (It helped that the cats were pretty much silent for the whole flight).
My advice is to thoroughly break in the ends of the carrier before getting to the airport if you plan to fit the carrier under an airplane seat. I've tried to fold up the ends since the flight and they're still pretty impossible. However, that doesn't mean the carriers aren't awesome otherwise.
When traveling, I highly recommend putting some absorbent "puppy pads" in the bottom of the carriers (over the top of the existing bottom insert). I also suggest traveling with extra pads in case you need to replace them because of accidents. One of the cats pooped during our traveling. After throwing out the one puppy pad we had (and lamenting the fact that we didn't foresee to pack extra puppy pads), we hoped the cat would do okay with just the regular insert. However she threw up in the carrier at the end of our flight. After deplaning, we cleaned it up as best we could in an airport bathroom. We were fortunate enough to find a family washroom where we could lock the door and let the cat out of the carrier for a few minutes while we wiped everything down and cleaned up as much as we could. After a quick drive home, we removed the bottom insert and unzipped the "furry" cover to wash it. It was easy to remove and run through the washing machine on a gentle wash cycle. After replacing the furry cover and putting the insert back into the carrier, the carrier was like new again.
Since arriving at home with the cats, we've traveled with the cats in the carriers one other time since and that was to take them to the vet. No problems with that trip. :) I love that the carriers could be safely buckled into the back seat of my car.
If it wasn't for the folding up problems, I would give these carriers 5 stars.
Also, if your pet is like mine and occasionally tries to get out by kicking and scratching, this is the bag you need. It's very solid, and the black one attracts no attention. It's dark, too, which allows your pet to feel protected. If you want peace of mind and a comfortable pet, I recommend it. Before getting this carrier, I red some reviews saying that it smelled like chemicals. It did, but after I aired it for a while and washed the removable plush cover, my pet had no issues.
Finally, if you need more information on moving your pet internationally, I've posted all my resources here: http://vivabolova.weebly.com/travel. People have commented with their questions/issues, too, so that might help you. I had such a hard time preparing for this move that I want to help anyone else going through the same.
Note: I went with the discreet black color as most people had no idea it was a cat carrier until she mewed. This was useful at the airport and at the gate.
