Newsflash: Traveling with your children can be hellish. So we give you a few carriers with the best kid-friendly perks that are sure to make flying with your little devil almost angelic.
Expecting to layover? JetBlue Airways’s newly revamped JFK hub (set to open by the end of the year) has been decorated by KeeBee, so waiting’s a breeze. Unlimited animal crackers and chocolate-chunk cookies in the air make the skies even kid friendlier. Best part? Every plane has a changing table.
The Right Direction
If it’s your child’s inaugural ride on Southwest Airlines, you can arrange for a First Time Flying Certificate. Or see if the pilot will give a cockpit tour before your plane takes off.
British Airways serves healthy menu options — like vegetable sticks with dips and chocolate-coated fruit — that make mealtime fun. And kids get fed first.
Something to Emirates
Let Emirates know it’s your child’s birthday in advance, and a cake will be served during the flight. You can also hook your camera up to the new digital wide-screen on your seat back and check out photos from the on-flight celebration before you even land.
And that’s just heavenly.
