flying MIA to JFK with a doona.my kid is flying as a lap child. will they make me gate check the doona if there is no extra seats?
If it fits in the overhead bin, no. If not, then obviously yes. And they may make you check it even if there are empty seats
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

you can request it. Just make sure and double check the airport code on the tag

They add it to the adult boarding pass. Don't need a separate one.

AA reps have added it for me many times on the phone.
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.
