All infant car seats are rear-facing. Children are required by law to rear-face until at least age 1, and it is recommended that parents continue to rear-face their children until at least age two. FAA requirements for the use of car seats on planes are that they are installed according to the manufacturer's instructions.

So all children under the age of one traveling in a car seat on a plane will be rear-facing, as required by the FAA. And most parents with children under the age of 2 will be rear-facing, as well -- or at least they should.
