During the Business Class flight, Emirates will present Fly With Me Animals -a furry animal toys to kids and blankets. Also, Emirates teamed up with Lonely Planet Kids to encourage children to explore the world.

The Bottom Line of Travel with Kids in Business Class

Research the airline offer and policy for younger travelers. For some, the travel would be free, for others, there is a  10% fee.

Next, airlines such as Thai Airways banned kids from their Business Class, and some might understand why. Whereas other airlines strive to provide a better service for those who travel with kids, another simply cut such an option. Also, some airlines presented a “Quiet Zone” where no one will be bothered by kids cry (for example, IndiGo).

The best kids-friendly Business Class airlines strive to serve both, those who travel with kids, by providing extra amendments, entertainment and service and for those who travel without kids, by arranging maximum privacy, noise-canceling headphones, and refreshments. So both types of travelers feel welcome onboard. Here are also some useful tips for flying with kids

  • I recently had a horrible experience with kids on a business class flight from San Jose, Costa Rica, to Miami. An ill-behaved child ran amok at the gate, parents did little or nothing to control her. They boarded the plane and sat in business class — they must have received a last minute upgrade from the gate agent since their seats were shown as available when I checked in 24 hours in advance. the child kept banging into my seat, talked loudly, and during meal service soiled her diaper, which her idiot father proceeded to change it in the seat. He apparently put the dirty diaper in the seat back since he did not get up to dispose of it or summon a flight attendant. I almost lost my lunch due to the stench. Children in diapers do not belong in business class, and parents should think long and hard before taking them on elective foreign trips. These people were on vacation, not traveling to visit family. the gate agent should have denied boarding based on the child’s behavior at the gate — an adult would not have been allowed to board after exhibiting such behavior, so why should a child? If your children cannot behave, stay at home until they can!
