Unfortunately for everyone else, I have now graduated into being one of those travellers with a small child. I am making my first dom flight with her next week when she will be 3 weeks old. In booking with Qantas, they advised that they would enter my request for a seat up the front so that I had access to a bassinet (you can tell it is all new to me as I not even sure if that is spelled properly) but would not guarantee anything. Is anyone aware of how the system works - is it a string of priority listings like most other things? Apologies in advance to anyone who is on a Syd -Mel flight Thursday week.
