bringing my son on an airplane..

im going on vacation at the end of march and i was looking at all the rules and regulations on the airline's website (keep in mind i haven't been on a vacation in years) and just found out i have to pay for an adult ticket for my 2 yr old?! AND he has to be in his own car seat on the plane? is this right? or am i reading it wrong?

  • no, youre right. anyone two or over has to have their own seat. it sucks cause you know he's gunna spend the whole time in yours.

  • Yes you have to buy a seat, but no he doesn't have to ride in the carseat. It is much safer to carry on the seat and have him ride in it though.

  • he does Not have to be in his carseat but yes..two and over have to have their own should call your airline just to double check

  • Yep...own ticket, but not the carseat. If you want him in a carseat, you have to bring his, though....and it has to be one approved for airplane travel. Not all of them are...
