Ugh, I'm at such a loss. We have plans to go to CA for Christmas this year and are splitting up due to my dd's college schedule. I'm taking the 13 yr. old ds and a newborn baby (due anytime now, will be about 3 mos. old when we travel). I have 100,000 FF points in one account to play with for my trip. It will be a non-stop flight coast to coast, about 5.5 hours in the air. Baby will be nursing. Choice A: 2 first class tickets, one for me, one for my ds, baby in lap cost: 100,000 pts. benefits: easier check-in using the first class line, especially nice when it's crowded going home on 12/31; might actually get some food; bottled water; better bathroom situation during the flight Choice B: 3 coach seats, 3 across, for ds, me, baby and room to put carseat between us cost: 75,000 points benefits: I'll still be able to pre-board, my legs are short so coach doesn't bother me all that much but it may be hard to hold the baby when necessary with the seat in front of me reclined Some of you may cringe, so don't flame me, but having a lap child doesn't bother me, while the car seat may be safer, I'll have my sling and the baby will probably spend most of it's time in there. SO----which should I book?????
