A Conversation for What to do When You Get to the Airport


Post 1


Some may have noticed that when the plane boards, people with babies and young children are often invited to the gate first. If you have a young child, this is a very good idea, especially on cheaper flights where the seats aren't pre-allocated. You don't want to be sat at the other end of the plane from your 3-year old after all.smiley - wah

However, they normally allow just about enough time for you to pick your bag off the floor before they invite everyone else up. Add to this the excruciatingly annoying habit of latecomers to mingle around the gate, ostensibly so that they are already "in the queue" when called, and there is no way on earth anyone with a small child is getting to the gate first.

The solution I have found, is to train the child in question to filter through the queue to the front. As a parent you obviously have to follow for fear of losing the child, and by rights you should have been there anyway.smiley - winkeye
