Anyone wishing for a way to avoid crying babies on planes may now have a way to do so. Japan Airlines now have a tool that lets you sit away from children when booking a seat.
According to CNN, when booking on the JAL website it says, “Passengers traveling with children between 8 days and 2 years old who select their seats on the JAL website will now have a child icon displayed on their seats on the seat selection screen.”
Unfortunately, for now, this feature only works if someone books directly through the JAL website. So if a third-party app was used, or there is a change in aircraft, child information will not be available.
