The age they are when you return.
I don't know if it depends who you're flying with or not, but we were told by Virgin to put the child's age when departing.
With cosmos I had to book a week earlier than I want as my son would have had to pay for his own seat had he turned two while we were there. As it is now he's free for everything
It may depend on whether you book a package or flight only. I always thought you put the child's age on date of return.
Here is a link to what it says on Virgin Atlantics website - http://virginatlantic.custhelp.com/...sion/L3RpbWUvMTM0OTQzMjAwMi9zaWQvWFNBTlBYN2w=
Yes, i think that's the same with every airline if an a child is under 2 when they fly out they are classed as an infant and you don't have to pay for a seat if they turn 2 before the return flight then they are classed as a child and you have to pay for the flight on the return flight. However I don't think that it matters if, for example the child is 8 on the way out and 9 on the way back.
I would of thought age when return
Might help if we know the company to do a little searching.
I know Disney & many airlines work on age on outbound flight or arrival date but if its a package or charter airline it might be different.
i was looking at the link for the august flights u posted thru kayak my sons birthday is the 10th aug so if i go for those cheap flights he will turn 7 while away
2 things, Kayak are only a search engine so it depends which airline you choose. Other is that it makes no difference age 6/7 for flight only, same price for either, he will be classed as a child. Once you book you will have to enter date of birth rather than age.
