When I traveled with my 25 month old, I wavered on whether or not to
buy her a ticket. I was afraid of getting caught, so I did. On one
of the flights, the attendant asked her age. When I told her 2 – she
exclaimed that she was really tiny for 2. When our flight was delayed
over and over and over again, I had her on my lap becuase she was
getting super grouchy. The flight attendant made me take my own seat
– which she hadn’t done until I told her my age. Prior to me telling
her age, the attendent didn’t mind her sitting on my lap. So, I think
the age is too arbitrary. A better way to measure whether or not
toddlers need to be in their own seat would be by weight, since, based
on my experience with that attendent and the person at the gate, they
had no idea that she was two, and haven’t been prepared for the fact
tthat I bought her her own ticket.
I wonder what the reasoning behind the “2” is…
