British Airways Bassinets

British Airways has been known for being family friendly. The fact that they partnered with BRITAX to offer car seats on board is a step in the right direction.

I had heard that they also offered Bassinets for infants but thought they might be somewhat of a ‘family travel myth’. Finally, a picture of them…

 One of the bloggers over at www.daddytypes.com used them for his twins on a recent flight overseas. Looks so comfortable!

Here is the official info from British Airways:
British Airways has a limited number of Britax infant seats which can be requested in advance. 

  • Ideal for ages from 6 months to 2 years, but can also be used from birth.
  • Adjustable to a variety of positions from horizontal to vertical.
  • Available for infants who weigh a maximum of 13kgs/29lbs.
  • Available on all longhaul flights, except in First Class on Boeing 777/767 aircraft where only carrycots are available. 
    For aircraft take-off and landing and in times of turbulence, infants have to be seated on their parent’s lap using the infant seat belts we provide.
