Kids Meals and Other Special Meals

Most regularly scheduled airlines no longer offer free meal services, but have a limited menu of food items for purchase as well as a free snack.

  • Most charters still offer meal service (few choices)
  • The new "no-frills" budget airlines usually don't serve anything except pretzels.
  • Don't assume that you will have access to infant food services on any airline.
  • If food is important, fly prepared to be self sufficient and allow for flight delays.
  • If you or your child have food allergies.....pack a lunch

Baggage Allowance Checked/Carry-on

This varies according to

  • Airlines used - according to the carrier
  • Final Destination and connecting points
  • Travel dates
  • Infants and other Fly Free tickets

Don't assume. Ask. Most airlines have recently changed their allowance. Excess or overweight baggage can be denied and/or additional costs may apply which can be very high.

Remember any ticket purchased adult/child has the same baggage allowance. Restrictions of maximum number of bags, overall dimensions and weight are always applied.
