"Is your child really TWO?"
Airlines require children over the age of two sit in a purchased seat. Even though, some of us have opted to purchase a seat for our children even if they were younger than two. Have you ever knowingly evaded those airline age limits, and called your over-two-year-old a "lap baby"? Have you had to prove your child's age? Sue is faced with the dilemma:
My family is heading to the East coast for the Holidays and using air miles to fly. My youngest is turning 2 on Dec 11 and I am wondering if anyone has flown when their child was slightly over the age limit for buying a ticket. She is a big kid and talks a lot so I am worried about being questioned about it. Has anyone ever been asked to prove their child’s age when not buying a ticket? The issue is compounded by the fact that we are flying first class at least one leg and do not want to buy a ticket at that price. We only have enough air miles for three tickets. I was thinking of just buying a regular ticket for her but sitting separately (one of the adults of course). I just hate buying a ticket when she will probably sit and nurse the whole time in my seat. Any experience would be helpful.
