Caley and Matt Hartney discovered that Air Canada only guarantees that a 2-year-old will be seated in the same cabin as a parent, but not an adjacent seat.
You’ll have to cough up $40 to ensure that your offfspring is seated next to you.
Air Canada confirms that this fee is a feature of their Tango airline.
The family told CBC News that “it’s not fair to have our two-year-old sit with other folks who have to take care of her. She’s not necessarily communicative. Who’s responsible for her on board? Is it the other passengers or is it the Air Canada staff? Are they going to take her to the washroom and change her? Are they going to feed her? Entertain her? I’m not sure how that would play out.”
