One airline helps you avoid sitting next to babies on flights

Many people cringe at the thought of sitting next to a fussy baby on a flight.

Now, one airline is giving passengers the option to avoid that experience.

Japan Airlines has implemented a pre-flight arrangement for parents of children between eight days and two years old which allows them to select their seats on the airline’s website.

The selected seats will then display a child icon which will let other passengers know that a child is sitting there. That way, when other passengers are selecting their seats they can choose one far away from any babies.

However, there might still be a chance that the baby-averse passenger could still end up next to a baby.  According to the airline’s guidelines, child icons won’t be displayed on seats booked as part of a tour or using award tickets or selected through means other than the JAL website.
