While most travelers understand that screaming babies aren’t purposely trying to ruin their flights, that doesn’t make it any easier when you’re seated next to one. Japan Airlines is offering passengers a solution with seat maps that show you where all of the infants and toddlers on your flight are sitting so that you can choose your seat accordingly.
Now when Japan Airlines select their seat from the map they’ll see a “child icon” that looks like a baby bassinet in places where children between 8 days and 2 years old are seated.
The airline warns that the baby map might not always be completely accurate and if a child seat is booked through another platform other than the Japan Airlines website, the child icon will not be displayed. In addition, if there is a change in aircraft, the baby locator icons may not be displayed in the correct spots.
Families who fly on Japan Airlines receive benefits as well and can take advantage of priority booking and check strollers free of charge. The airline also provides bottle-warming, diapers, and child-friendly entertainment.
