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.

Something of a hack, but it should work.  Book an extra seat for yourself, making sure that the extra seat is a window seat.  Then add the baby as a lap infant and use your extra seat.  Maybe verify with airline that it won't be an issue.

Shouldn’t be an issue. No need to show ID if paying for a seat.
