This happened with us. DS2 was 2 on the flight home, so had to have a seat. TBH, having a seat for him (it was Long Haul) was much better

It's the age on return that matters- he's a child.

If you are booking both together (ie as a package holiday) then he is a child. If booked as separate flights then he can be infant one way (no seat) and child on return.

I'm pretty sure they go by age on date of return flight, so you would have to buy a seat if he turns 2 on the day you return. Could you not bring it forward a day and save the money? grin

Child. I had this with DD. Could be infant on outward leg depending on how you book flights.

probably child as i think asother posters have said they stop being an infant when they turn two having been on a 5 hour flight with my then 15 mo son i would suggest getting a seat as it is really hardwork keeping a toddler on your knee all that time

We did this when youngest DS turned 2. Flew out as an infant on my knee free. And home as a child in a seat - paying. Didn't stop every single steward asking if he should be on my knee. Only if you want to give me my money back!
