    One lap child is one thing... twins on laps, that's something else. Have one more? No worries, just put him on your 3 year old's lap...

    Wait, what? :)

    Yeah that's what US Airways said, and everybody ended up off the plane when it was all said and done.

    Indeed, when you check the main US Airways page, your options are Adults and Children (2-14). It's not until you do the advanced search (under Book Travel --> Flights) that you see the option for infants in seat/lap.

    Still, I can't believe that anybody would think it a good idea to have a 3 year old hold a baby in their lap for a flight... that just doesn't make much sense to me.

    what....a 3 yr old doesnt have the strength to hold on to the infant and in an emergency reach up to grab the air mask and put it on the infant themselves? Certainly the 3 yr old would know how to put on their life preserver as well. Certainly the 3yr old would be able to read the safety card too! Were they in the exit row too?:eek:

    They are a strong candidate for 2011's parents of the year.
