How to reach your destination without travel tantrums from your grandchildren

No grandparent wants to trade places with the family whose travel plans came to a sudden halt when their 3-year-old grandchild wouldn’t stay in her seat during takeoff. With airlines facing increased safety concerns, unruly passengers, no matter what their age, will be asked to disembark if they’re not able to follow the rules.

Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations require that any child, age 2 and older, must have his own seat with a buckled seat belt before the aircraft can takeoff. In this case, the flight had already been delayed 15 minutes while the parents tried to convince their child to stay seated. Flight personnel requested they disembark and even though the family was reimbursed the costs of their tickets and provided three roundtrip tickets to anywhere the airline flew, they were left scrambling for alternate travel plans.

If you’re planning a family getaway involving air travel with a toddler or pre-schooler, here are a few ideas that may help keep your grandson in his seat, you on schedule and the other passengers commenting on what a well-behaved grandchild you have.

If you are a "power user", it's important to check the speeds of the cards and the quality of service at locations that you may use frequently. It's much easier to get a card working fast in urban areas and along main highway corridors than off the beaten path.

This is now a very real possibility with cellular data cards, also known as "air cards." The first thing you need to know is that they have nothing to do with your cellular phone service. Forget all about that.
