PENNINGTON, N.J., June 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With more people flying this
summer than in the past six years (210 million passengers are expected to fly
on U.S. carriers from 6/1-8/31*), Family Vacation Critic, has released a
family-friendly airline guide for families who are planning to fly with young
children over summer break.

The new airline guide breaks down family-friendly amenities by airline,

  oPre-boarding for families with children
  oThe option to carry young toddlers on an adult's lap
  oDiaper changers
  oDiscounted child fares
  oKids meals
  oThe ability to heat bottles
  oKid-friendly entertainment
  oWi-Fi access
  oStroller gate check

"When traveling with young children, one of the more stressful parts of the
trip can be just getting to the destination," says Lissa Poirot, editor of
Family Vacation Critic. "When it comes to air travel, there are a number of
factors for parents to consider – bigger things, like whether there will be
onboard kids meals or kid-friendly entertainment, and more specific concerns
like if the airline will heat a baby bottle or if passengers can gate check
strollers. As airlines continue to alter their onboard experiences, it's tough
to keep track of what specific airlines offer – particularly for families.
Knowing the answers ahead of time can help parents search for flights on
carriers that provide what they need, or help to be better prepared for the
journey ahead of time."
