We're looking to book a flight at the end of February for 2 adults and a one year old (who will get her own seat). What airlines have you found have the best prices and which ones have been the best to fly on with a child?
This is kind of delayed lol, but we flew from Florida to California (one stop in Atlanta) with me, my husband, and my (at the time almost 4 year old) son. We flew Delta and had a fairly easy and uneventful trip. I would recommend bringing a stroller (if you weren't sure about taking it) it flies free they check it with carry on luggage. We unfortunately did not bring ours on a week trip..and it was hell. Luckily we were able to borrow a family members stroller while there. Car seats also get checked for free if you planned on bringing your own. We had no issues with our car seat, but if you're concerned about it getting damaged you could always go and buy a cheap one that you can get rid of after the trip. Oh and we didn't bring the carseat for LO to sit in.
A bottle of hand sanitizer was a must, I just squirted it on a baby wipe to wipe all surfaces on the plane. Child size headphones if LO watches TV, depending on what plane you're on. Or if you have a portable DVD player or something you could occupy some time with that. Coloring stuff, stickers and a notebook, snacks and drinks (TSA approved of course)..
Oh and as for prices, I don't know exactly how much it was, my husbands grandmother paid for our flight tickets. So I'm no help with that part unfortunately. But feel free to ask about anything else that you can think of that concerns you
We fly a lot. Jet blue has been theist accommodating and comfortable room wise and flight attendant wise lol. US air is usually the cheapest, but it's small
And the flight attendants were always rude...but that's just my experience! I flew alone with Elliot twice...no fun.
