    Booking a return ticket for a child (under 6) with different parent - is this possible?

    Hi all - this is an odd one and I expect the answer to be no. But just checking anyway. I want to book a return ticket for my son SIN - SYD. He is under 6 years old. The idea is that on the way SIN - SYD, I fly down with him. But on the way back, SYD - SIN, his mom will accompany him. At the...

    Anyone used a car seat for child on SQ? PE & J

    Hi All, Has anyone used a car seat for their child on SQ recently (when purchased their own seat, he is over 2 but under 3)? Our little fella is pretty busy, and being able to have him in a seat he uses all the time will be really helpful, plus I think he will sleep better in it. I have...

She is in a new job and not able to take leave, and it's easier sometimes to entertain the children on a holiday rather than at home. Some Accor properties have a max children per room of 2, despite a room capacity of...

    Is $7600 AUD good value to upgrade Emirates Premium Economy to Business.....

    Is $7600 AUD good value to upgrade Emirates Premium Economy to Business, for SYD - LHR, for 3 adults & 1 child? It seems to me to be good value, at least compared to the same upgrade on the return leg (Athens to Sydney) which is over $19K AUD.... These are the prices quoted on the Emirates...

    The TomCat Family's Luxury Escape

    It's been a long time between Luxury Escapes and I need a distraction so I'm starting this thread super early. No sneaky baby announcements this time, but we do now have the two kids instead of just one 😂 This trip has been quite the saga. It started as a 2020 booking at The Westin Hapuna...

    Child case for iPad

    Just bought a 10th Gen iPad to keep my 16 month old busy on some very long flights. Looking to get a case for it that can withstand some serious beatings (this boy is nuts) and easy to hold for small hands. There are a number of options on Amazon and they may all be as good as each other. Just...

    Hi All So I recently saw in a qantas facebook group, a person was complaining that the attendant at a Qantas Club lounge was requesting that her infant needed to have a complementary qantas lounge pass assigned to the child. I saw this and thought that is really stupid, and it is not what I...

Lady Lenny and I have been planning to attend my cousins wedding in Brisbane in May, that was meant to be no kids, but she has ended up inviting all 3 of us, which is great!! But it does...

    Adding a child to a KF redemption booking / book for a child standalone?

    Hi everyone - a bit of a weird one that I could not figure out online as well as call centre waiting times for SQ are shocking. Does anyone have any view or even experience whether a child (paid) can be added to a redemption ticket booked for myself? I have enough KF for my own ticket but not...

    Points Club member - child

    I was pondering whether any AFF members had children (under 18) who were Points Club members. Obviously credit card earning is not possible but there are other ways to earn points, with some hard graft, that could potentially mean entry to Points Club. The key benefit I am looking for from it...
