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.

Ok. Thanks.
Opposite side of things.
What's the minimum age ( how many days or weeks old) a child has to be to fly on Elal?

My daughter will be flying with her 10-month-old on Delta domestic on a 3.5 hour flight. Since she's going to be solo (husband is flying back earlier), she'd like a seat for the baby. Any problem with basic economy? They're not too likely to seat them separately. Second question: they'll be flying while Delta is still blocking middle seats. I'm assuming they'll let her put the baby right next to her, right?

Have same question. Flying with DW & DS next week in Delta. Will I be able to take the car seat on board?

If its a paid ticket than obviously she will have entire row to herself. If it's a lap child, there are no guarantees, but if it's not a full flight she should be Ok.

Shouldn't have an issue.

I asked Delta today & they said I won't be able to bring the car seat aboard. I guess it doesn't hurt trying by the gate & just gate check if they don't allow. (Car seat locks onto carriage so not a hassle)

I'm new at this  :) so apologize if questions were asked before.
If traveling with 3 month year old on a flight and have a stroller with a car seat ( car seat is strapped into stroller) I will be able to gate check stroller and car seat for free?

Wheel it to the plane and they should tag it at the gate and then check it at the plane door.
Always praying for delayed baggage.

YMMV, I never had issues with normal airlines.
