Not so much of a complaint, but why is this the way that it is? Here is the policy that I and the reservations AAgent overlooked when it came to booking flights for my infant son...straight from the AA
Traveling With An Infant On American Eagle Flights
If you will be traveling with an infant on an American Eagle aircraft as shown below, you must be seated in one of the following seats which are designated life vest-equipped rows:
SAAB 340B - seats 10C, 11C or 12C
ERJ 135 - seats 11C, 12C or 13C
ERJ 140 - seats 13C, 14C or 15C
ERJ 145 - seats 15C, 16C or 17C
Bombardier CRJ-700 - seats 15D, 16D or 17D
We got to the airport and got reassigned from row 7 to row 16 A, B, and C. on an E-145. When I picked-up my son and brought him to my side of the cabin (single seaing in A, BC
on the other side of the aisle), I was politely requested to return him to the other side of the aisle as there is only 1 oxygen mask on that side of the aisle.
So why are these special seats in the back of the plane? How come AA
mainline do not care and do not have infant vests? Why can't the infant vests be "portable?" Any other airlines have these restrictions?
