Japan Airlines introduces seat map that tells you if you’re sitting next to an infant

With this announcement, Japan Airlines may now be my favorite airline in the world.

In a move that is sure to please almost every passenger, Japan Airlines has announced that they will now include an icon showing whether your seat is next to a child aged 8 days to 2 years old. The icon looks like this:

Baby

This benefits passengers who don’t want to sit next to a screaming a child and parents who don’t want to bother noise-sensitive travelers.

In a statement released on its website, Japan Airlines (JAL) said:

“Passengers traveling with children between 8 days and 2 years old who select their seats on the JAL website will have a child icon displayed on their seats on the seat selection screen.”

The only downside seems to be that the baby icon won’t appear for those who book their travel outside the JAL website (such as through the Chase platform or with partner award miles). That said, I think this is a great offering and hope other airlines follow suit!
