How Does a Family of Three Sit Together in the Premium Cabin in an Airplane?
A woman travels with two children, one of whom is four years old and the other is one year old. The airline tickets were paid by the father of the woman in the First Class section, where there is usually never more than two contiguous seats. Even if the woman held the one-year-old child in her lap, there still were no seats available at the time of booking to have them sit together with the four-year-old child. The people sitting in nearby seats refuse to relinquish them, and the on-board crew allegedly would not assist in this matter.
What are your thoughts on this situation? Whose fault is it? What would you do? What advice would you give?
