Exemptions to social distancing/middle seat blocked?

Fri Apr 24, 2020 2:25 pm

Sorry if this has been answered, this is one that has me curious being a father with a 3yr old and 7 yr old.

Are the airlines that are are blocking middle seats still allowing families to sit together? I know my wife wants to fly to see her parents later this year but Im concerned if airlines are still doing this that there may be an issue (and driving 20 hrs each way would be insane), My oldest has has some anxiety issues and needs someone right next to her and the youngest one is still in the "terrible 2s" and it would be a disaster being a seat away from her.

I have nothing to confirm, but I can’t see why they wouldn’t allow this. I am in a similar situation and can’t see that the airlines would stop you sitting next to a family member.
