The new airline guide breaks down family-friendly amenities by airline, including:    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."
