Japan Airlines has launched a revolutionary feature which allows passengers to check where babies are sitting on a flight. First revealed in 2019, the feature recently came under the spotlight after being available on a website allowing passengers to see where parents have booked seat with a child.
A specific icon will represents any travellers between eight days and two years old. According to the airline’s passengers travelling with children between eight days and two-years-old who select their seats on the Japan Airlines website will have a child icon displayed on their seats on the seat selection screen.
This would allow other passengers know a child may be sitting there. Passenger Rahat Ahmed already tweeted a picture of the baby icon back in 2019 and praised the move. He thanked Japan airlines and mentioned that the move should be mandatory across the board.”
He also added that other airlines should take note after having travelling with multiple screaming children during a 12 hour flight. Several social media users were in agreement, with many appreciating the idea. Meanwhile, some showed disapproval stating that it was already difficult for parents travelling with kids anyway.
