Yeah it's perfectly fine. My parents flew with me at 3 days. Your 3 month old will be fine.

It's safe for him to be in a plane, but with the crowds, stress, bags, noise, hassle and all of that he might get squished, lost, or sick from the stress. It's unlikely, but still there. At least it's a short flight. I'd say do it (Especially if you're going through some not-too-large airports) but if you think it might be better to just leave him with a nanny then do what you think is best. If you're flying then be sure to watch him and keep him close and visable at all times. (Visable to others so that they think twice before cramming next to you to squeeze into a line or something) I think it'll be fine.

If you nurse him or give him a bottle during take off and landing, it might help his ears. The sucking will help with the change in pressure.

Yes it's ok. I took my 3 month old to Fiji. She was fine. Best to feed them when taking off and landing to help with the pressure changes. My little girl slept all the way.
