Air Travel Advice!
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.
