So I have a flight Booked for March MEL-SYD-NRT-BOS with my wife my self and a 6 month old. Why that way you ask? Funny story. Mostly because everything from MEL was MEL-LAX-change to ONT-DFW-BOS so since it was going to be two stops anyway I figured getting off a long haul at home was a better option. Anyway, SYD-NRT we are on QF21 booked in 2E,2F which despite what the AA rep told me over the phone are in fact NOT bassinet seats. I poked at the QF website and got into seat selection here is my question. Is it better to book the two middle seats and have the baby in a lap or to book 2 cross asial seats with a bassinet? Or will the distance across the asial be to much? I am also very confused because the Seat Map on qantas.com is showing first class seat map for the lower cabin, which makes the whole thing all more confusing, atleast thats what I can figure out from looking at their generalized diagrams. Should I book 4a/4e or should I stick with 2e,2f? Or is the seat selection totally screwed up? Thank you all.
