A tip someone gave me is to book a night flight as they will sleep most of the way!

Not sure about car seats on board as they have to sit on your lap as you will not of paid for a seat each! More likely classed as luggage, they will let you take your pram right up to the plane and they will put it in with the luggage then, thats what they let us do, to be honest they were really helpful to us. You can buy baby water from the chemists.

Hope thats been of help.

You can take car seats, but if you have not bought a seat for them, then there is no point in taking them as you won't be able to use them!

If you have bought a seat, then you need to be sure that the seat meets the airlines regulations (so if you are flying to Canada on a Canadian Airline, then chances are your British seat will not have the correct 'classification' sticker on it and therefore cannot be used inflight).

Also - be warned that you will not be able to sit in the same row because there is only one oxygen mask per group of seats. So, if the babies are on your lap, and the plane is configured as 2 seats, an aisle, three seats, an aisle and 2 seats, you both cannot sit together in the 2 seats as there will be four of you and only three oxygen masks. However, you can sit one in the group of two seats, and one across the aisle in the group of three. Does that make sense?
