The flight was so bad that I immediately purchased my son his own seat for the return. His seat was not cheap, but it was worth EVERY penny! I learned my lesson! He sat comfortably in his car seat and was a good boy! Now, he did have kick fest with the seat in front of him…but that was fine since I strategically placed his dad in front of him! Do NOT start feeling sorry for my husband, please keep in mind that my son sat on MY lap during the flight up and I do believe a few kicks in the back would have been better than what I dealt with.
