Wow, that's quite a journey you will be taking! My sister Sally flew from Arizona to Iowa once and then flew back with mom. It was a much shorter trip than yours and they only had to change planes once each way (4 planes total).
A couple of things- they made mom take Sally out of the carrier to go through the metal detector. It was a little scary- mom was afraid that Sally might try to bolt out of her arms and get lost in the airport (didn't happen- mom's just a worrier). So if you can bring a harness or something just in case you have to do that too- it will probably be less stressful if you are prepared.
Also, mom kept Sally in the carrier the whole time on the plane- again, she didn't want Sally to get scared and bolt out of her arms. Sally was safer in the carrier. But- once the plane was in the air, mom held the carrier on her lap most of the trip. That helped mom and Sally feel better- they could see each other!
Good luck on your trip- it sounds like your mom is very thoughtful and is thinking about how to make it the best possible trip for you!
