Earning mileage: Infants (who don't pay for a full ticket) are not eligible to earn miles.

Luggage: Some people report that their friend or parent flew and got lucky. However, it's best to check with the Airline (on their website or calling them), BEFORE packing your suitcases. Here are some helpful links:

Proof: Some airlines require proof of age. Rather bring along some kind of proof, and not get stuck because of an gate agent or TSA guard that had a bad day.

Infants are cute.

Please help with this wiki.

So if flying with an infant is it worth it to spend the extra 30k for another seat to strap in a car-seat??
Absolutely.

if theres an empty seat on the plane, most of the time theyll arrange it so that the empty seat is near you (if you request it)

I'm flying American Airlines to Tlv (It changes to BA at Heathrow)  Their website says that an infant gets the full 23kg/50lb but that the suitcase has to a max. of 45 inches (carry on size).  Anyone have any experience?

Repost: But I fount this thread and its more on topic.

Where would I be better off attaching an infant from TlV - NYC- on a reward booked with AA booked or a reward booked with MAtmid points

TIA

It doesn't matter.
It all depends on the airline you're flying on. CMIIW

Obviously its EL AL if its Matmid points. The question is should I attach the infant to the AA award and or the matmid award?

You're asking again the same question.
And my answer was in regards to luggage allowances.

Its doesn't matter since you any ways pay 10% of the full fare whether it's booked with AA or LY.

AA wants to charge me the full fare of a one way ticket... Will LY do that too?
