Flight attendants want to ban carrying children on their laps

Citing safety concerns and a number of recent intense incidents involving turbulence during aircraft flights, the Airline Attendant Association (AFA-CWA) is again calling for a ban on infants who must sit on their parents’ lap during flight.

This is not the first time the union has asked for a ban, but in light of recent events in the air, it has come to the fore once again.


This was stated by Union President Sarah Nelson in an interview with the Washington Post. In recent times, planes have been falling over 4,000 feet in seconds, and “neither mother nor father, however much they love their child, can protect him from it.”

Whether it flies with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is another story.

Now a child under two years old can fly without a seat. The union simply states that every person should have a seat and a safety system such as a lap belt, regardless of age.

The issue was brought up again at the FAA Safety Summit last week.
