When travelling internationally do airlines offer children a less formal meal if they are in F or C with their parents?
Clearly they are not going to be offered the wine list, just wondered if,when they know that younger people are travelling in Premium cabins are there any catering concessions available? Any international airline more child friendly?


you don't get a second chance to make a first impression!

Any airline with a First Class on an international route will have a Child meal available for pre-booking. Doesn't really matter what cabin it's served in.

Here's the official list of IATA codes for special meals: http://dictionary.sensagent.com/iata+code/en-en/#IATA_meal_codes

"Clearly," eh?

tee hee hee

When my sister and I were little we flew as unaccompanied minors BOS-FLL on EA. In accordance with EA's policy of overbooking each of their flights by nine-hundred-and-sixty-billion per cent, we got bumped and ended up in first class on an LGA-FLL leg.

There we were, sitting in the 1st class cabin, with our alligator shirts (it was the early 80's, see), braces, and our books of word-search puzzles and other kids' travel amusements before takeoff, when an F/A came around waving a bottle of wine and asking us if we'd like any.

The stereotype of the bimbo flight attendant, brought to life...

For my small one I don't order special meals since he is two. Now, at 6, he also prefers to select from the menu his daily preference, and quality airlines always offer gadgets for kids with the meals anyways, as via the reservation they know they will have a child on board a premium class.
As children's meals are not always tempting it does come to curious situations. Once, LH put on board with good mood a children´s special for my son - and they had an extra unbooked child on board. We were in C, the other one in Y; Purser asked if a switch was possible (C to Y and my son got C-á-la-carte). Welcome change. The forseen C-child meal was not tempting at all but the child in the back smiled, so did mine, so did the crew, to make it short, everyone was happy.

You said "yes," of course... right?

Not to mention the much less strict European attitudes (and laws). A few years ago my 16 year-old niece was pleased to find a small bottle of wine on her meal tray while we were travelling on LH.
