Huh? Because there's no assigned seating doesn't mean that someone who paid for a seat has to stand, while people are putting kids in seats that they didn't pay for.

I've been rudely approached and told I can't bring on my car seat and then when I explain that the baby has a ticket, they get ruder and make up a million stories about how there's still a problem
I experienced this a few times.
It's crazy how power gets to these people's heads.
They can't handle the fact that they made a mistake.

lap child does not get a seat
Some tickets just say infant, not LAP child... Sit em down.
Maybe there were 10 kids in seats and only 5 needed to move... See who is going to move, maybe you'll get Lucky...

Maybe force everyone to take a middle seat first as well.

Maybe there were 30 kids in seats and only 5 needed to move.

And maybe the gate agents told people there's 30 extra seats so it's fine to take a seat. And didn't realize there were 30 infants

Huh? No one ended up standing.

And technically any seat that they put there kids can be empty so why not suit themselves until push comes to shove?

You never sat in the isle when you were assigned a middle praying the person wouldn't come? And then he came and then you moved over.

If u work for a living, why kill urself working?

Why would you do that? Either he comes, or he doesn't. If he comes, why you sitting in his seat and making him awkwardly ask you to move? If he not come, then you move over after they close the door.

Someone else with a different middle seat might wait to board last and take the empty aisle instead of you.
