Traveling with young kids can present a number of challenges. Children aren’t known for being patient, quiet, or considerate of others. Additionally, small spaces and long lines are not kid-friendly! Booking first class tickets for your family may provide some extra leg room but may be an annoyance to other premium-paying passengers who may be paying extra just to avoid flying next to kids. In fact, some airlines will remove loud or crying children from first class, even if the seats are paid for. This has been met with mixed reviews from airline travelers.
Chartering a Plane for Families with Small Kids
For a family with young children, it may be a better idea to fly privately for a number of reasons. These can include:
Plan around your family’s schedule – You can choose your flight time! This means leaving right after naptime or flying overnight when kids can sleep. Some families need a bassinet or dining tables for eating or playing games. Please let us know how we can help you plan around your family’s schedule.
More flexibility – With a private flight, you’re able to choose not only the schedule, but the in-flight entertainment, amenities, the food, and the seating arrangements. Many aircraft will allow kids to move around the cabin and have common areas to gather. Some even offer fully reclining seats, private washrooms, or full-size beds onboard.
Privacy instead of anxiety – If your child is fussy, anxious, or loud during the flight, you won’t have to feel stressed or guilty. If you fly privately, you won’t have to worry about the comfort of the other passengers. Instead, it’s all about your family and what you need for a peaceful flight.
