What a fab idea ! Surprised no-one else has come up with that. Having suffered for over 4 hrs on a Monarch Larnaca - Gatwick flight once, I welcome this innovation.

Great! So when I fly with my son we’ll get plenty of empty seats near us to spread out into!

Never flown on JAL, I see. Empty seats? More like you'll get all the other families around you, or a bunch of disgruntled salarymen who were forced by their companies to book travel last minute.
I'm tired of being a wanna-be league bowler. I wanna be a league bowler!

I know that is the first thing I thought of. Buy a "fake" child ticket in order to scare people from sitting near me LOL
I don't really understand people's aversion to children on planes. I never found the occasional crying baby to be bothersome. And small people around me means I have more room to spread out and recline. I especially love it when there's a kid sitting behind me because I don't have to feel guilty about reclining. He'll still have plenty of space :)
I would much rather there was a way to flag passengers who smell, are drunk, or are extra large. And I would really like it if airlines enforced their carry-on policies.

ANA and JAL has "Infant Icon" on seat map system since 2013.

Excelsior! Now how about an icon for bratty seatback-kickers, obnoxious drunks, stinky smokers, phony ESAs, and bulbous "persons of size"?

Most people don't want to near babies. I do feel bad for the parents but it's true.

But I would also love a system where the Fully Recliners can be identified so I can avoid them! In fact, maybe the Full Recliners can sit together in their own section at the back of Y where they can all recline their heads into each others laps in claustrophic delight and only cause inconvenience to each other.
