Fly tomorrow. Just been told clearing customs in under 90 mins is an achievement. We land at midnight.
What would be the best way to carry a 15 kg sleepy 4 yr old using an aeroplane blanket? Or at least take some of the support so I can manage a sleepy 6 yr old and a sh1t load of lugage.

Or, I can rip up an old duvet cover. But no stitching. I literally have kitchen scissors to do this with.....

What do they say proir planning prevents piss poor performance??!!! Me thinks I havnt planned. Any hacks gratefully received.

Well I'm not sure stealing the aeroplane blanket would be your best start if you're hoping for assistance from cabin crew.

Do they still take the buggies out and have them waiting at the bottom of the steps? If so then I'd do that with a cheap/old buggy. If not then you'll have to wake him I'm afraid.

I had wondered about that... No way I'll be able to do a buggy and the luggage. I think he's going to be half awake whatever I do, just trying to think of a way to free an arm. He's just going to have to walk, isn't he?

wake him up 15 minutes before landing and fill him with sugar. Mars bar should do it.
