I want to book September flights to Italy for my family, including a baby not due til June. Ryanair is the only airline that flies to Perugia.
I read a similar thread to this where the OP came back and said Ryanair were very helpful about it and you just added the infant to the booking once it was born and paid the standard £20 each way infant fare.
This sounds too easy for Ryanair; expecting them to sting me for an admin fee at least. I'm also wondering if I can amend the booking online or whether I would need to phone up to do it.
Anyone else had experience of this and can reassure me/tell me that I'm just being pessimistic?
I had the same issue and called Ryanair - they told me to book the flight without the infant and then call with the infant details once it was born and they would add it to the booking ( for the normal £20 infant fee.) Baby due in july so will see if adding the infant goes smoothly or not quite soon!
I booked DD onto a BA flight a couple of months before she was born. We were in a different country, so I went into the travel agents once she'd arrived and the man with the big gold ring (that was how he was known) put her name down.
Please don't take an infant on a flight, think about other people. What if the baby starts crying and goes on for hours? You are in a constraint environment, people won't be able to get away from you. Flying is unpleasant enough, please don't make it even more so. I'd never think it's ok to fly with a baby.
MK, are you serious? What about those of us who have (older) family abroad, shouldn't they get a chance to see their grandchildren? Yes, babies cry but hopefully most adults are understanding enough to accept this on a flight, especially a flight within Europe, which lasts max 2 hours.
