We switch to cloth as soon as we arrive though. Also, we only flew a few times before DS was on solids and then we did take cloth. He had frequent blow outs in disposables (we didn't start cloth until 4 months old) and I didn't want to risk a blow on a plane or during travel in general. It is a pain to change on airline change tables. They are hard, small and awkward. Bring along an extra special change table toy just incase for distraction, our cell phone worked great lol Whichever you choose bring 1/3 to double what you would generally use. Delays are a PITA and you don't want to be stuck somewhere without a change.

i didn't know they have changing tables in the bathrooms! Good to know. I'm sure it's itty bitty.

In the planes I have been on they have. Most often in the back ones, folded up behind the toilet. They are tiny

If you want your diapers back, I wouldn't reccomend putting them in a stroller bag. They always rip mine...contents would be falling out.
