Ok, I've been cruising my appropriate airlines' websites, the TSA sites, etc...

With the new restrictions, you're very limited to what you can bring on-board (as we all know now). But, what about baby seats?

Travelling with a 1-year old internationally (US->France->Germany). Thoughts?

From what I know, the US carry on policy hasn't changed, save for the new liquids policy. I don't think France or Germany has restricted their policy, so you should be alright. Best way to know for sure is to call the airline.

50 minutes on hold with Air France (new thread suggestion - worst hold music for an airline?) then gave up (had to go on with life)...

Baby seats/beds for the time on the aircraft are provided by most airlines. Let them know at the check-in (latest) that you're travelling with an infant and could need a baby seat. They will try to give you a seat in the first row, cause this is where the baby beds/seats can be installed.

Baby bassinets are, correct.

Nobody provides seats, you bring your own and pay the child fare instead of the INF (no seat) fare.

Tried calling USAirways and No body knows what they are doing... That is because they are routeing their calls to overseas operators and they are not very helpfull.

Your anger is misplaced. Where the operator is, their nationality, does not matter. They are relaying information given to them by the company. If the operator doesn't know, the company hasn't told them.

If an operator in Iraq cannot answer the question, it is unlikely that one in Hometown USA can answer the question.

Maybe you should just drive to the airport and ask someone in person.

Disagree . . . please see this thread: http://www.airliners.net/discussions...general_aviation/read.main/2893011

I assure you the US Air Res widgets in Manila haven't got a frackin' clue. DTWAgent's assessent is spot on.

Car/baby seats are okay to take onboard. The current restrictions are in regard to liquids/gels/toothpaste like substances being taken as carry on
items.

Actually, British Airways does, onboard 777 and 747 aircraft. First-come, first-served, subject to availability.

Seats? Instead of the bassinets attached to the wall? I've never heard of this one.

Hey thanks for the link, now I can go read my own posts in that thread again.


Doesn't change my opinion in this situation one bit.

There is a difference between somebody being able to work a problem vs passing on simple information like "car seats are allowed"

As of Friday afternoon (things do change rapidly) domestic US travel with car seats is permitted. Intl travel to/from non UK car seats are permitted. Travel to UK car seats should be permitted however I understand AA is applying leaving UK restrictions to UK arrival flights as well which basically is the no carryon rule. Very good question.

Here is another one asked yesterday
"I can buy a salad at a retailier past security...what about the salad dressing?"

Quick answer was no.

What if the salad comes with dressing already on it?

Last time I rode on BA (Christmas time) they did. If a seat
is purchased for the child/infant it's a safety issue NOT to use
a child seat. Very odd.

I was referring to todays' environment, not 8 months ago. Today is very different of course, with only clear plastic bags with the bare minimum of contents being permitted onboard.

Yes, seats, not BSCT's! Cannot be pre-booked though, and always subject to availability.

BA offers an excellent service for babies (and for the parents too), but it is the only one I know it does it but only in long haul flights.

Well, besides that, what about baby food? I get to travel overseas three or four times a year with my family and my three years old girl is allergic to milk, soy, eggs and nuts. So where ever we go with her we have to take a portion large enough for the whole trip of special milk formula very difficult to get. And, usually on an overseas flight she eats up to four times. We take along with us her prescriptions, but I want to know if this new situation will give me trouble.

If the name on a prescription and the bottle match the name on the ticket, it is okay to bring on board. But watch out for stupid people who think they know better than a doctor or other medical professional.

My wife and I are totally worried about flying with our daughter. No toys for kids either. How do you keep them occupied? A 1 year old will not be interested in movies. Sorry to anyone flying where the toys were taken away from the child. Oh that would mean no teddy bear or blanky either...
