There's no perfect answer, but I would consider boxing it up rather than dragging it through the airport if you're nervous about it. I haven't been on a flight recently that had extra seats, so I wouldn't count on that although I know it happens :-/
To the bolded: YES! Also, when you gate check items (strollers/car seats) they do not take liability if it gets broken whereas if it is checked at the ticket booth they do.
