Not sure if this has been posted, but Etihad is offering nanny service. See article here.

Just saw that now on FT, so cool, and it will be offered for free on all long flights.

I flew last week to AZ and the grand canyon. Will still write a trip report, but i'm a little turned down and I want to share.

Myself, my wife and my 3 month old daughter flew the returning flight in First class. there were 2 older gentiles in the seat in front of us. The first 15 minutes and also a few short times in middle my daughter was crying actually screaming, and the 2 people in front of us kept on screaming on us "get her quiet" "shut up" "next time don't come to first class". I was really embarrassed. Anyone else had such a bad experience?

I flew on the delta deal JFK-LAX in business with four children. Each kid had a lie flat seat. There was an older WASP couple there that was glaring at us the whole time. In our case my kids actually were very well behaved so it was totally uncalled for.

I was laughing because they probably paid upwards of $3500 for their tickets and we paid $80.

There was another Jewish couple on the flight with a baby that had his own seat in business. They had also gotten in on the deal from Dan's post.

In your case though, with them actually speaking out like that.... Wow.

How was the crew?
I remember when a coke was a nickel, and you could buy VRs in OD.

The crew was nice to us. The 2 people didn't scream loud, just whispered loud. I don't think the crew realized.

Just enjoy the fact that they paid full fare and you booked on CC bonuses points.

I will be traveling to florida in febuary and trying to figure out which car seat to buy for my 18 month old baby. The 2 options i'm looking at are the Graco ComfortSport and Cosco Scenara. Most people here seem to have the scenara but from my research online it seems like its made from hard plastic and uncomfortable while the comfortsport is more comfortable. Anyone ever compare the 2? Any advice would be appreciated.

Any of them favorable to you?

Ultimately i think it will come down to a last minute decision at the gate, unless they specifically say no.

They said "they don't think so". But they were israeli so couldn't really question their reasoning and when I did they just said no. Wondering if anyone has personal experience.

Usually people expect it to be quieter upstairs.
