British Airways Has Just the Ticket (and New Lounges) for Flying Kiddos

January 8, 2013 at 12:19 PM | by | ()

We can't ignore the fact that we see more and more children becoming frequent flyers nowadays. 2013 is the year for British Airways to cater to their smallest flyers with the addition of expanded kid-friendly products and services.

As much as we would rather not travel with children, it's inevitable and it makes sense for an major airline like BA to take the energy to ensure the youngest frequent flyers are taken care of and comfy both in the air and on the ground. Realistically, these young flyers will grow up and become full-fledged customers with their own spending power.

October 9, 2009 at 3:38 PM | by | ()

Spike Jonze's adaptation of the children's classic "Where The Wild Things Are" opens October 16th, and if you can't actually be with Max in the woods, head to New York for some wild activities.

Wild Things Week introduces kids of all ages to Maurice Sendak's book and gets them excited for the Dave Eggers-scripted movie. Aside from fashion collaborations inspired by the movie and reissues of the book, there are tons of events happening around the country to celebrate the favorite childrens' book. We've discovered a few just in New York City, but we're sure that a google search should bring up a few events in whatever city you live in.

NYC's wild rumpus beings after the jump.

NewYorkology: Toy Heaven

December 1, 2006 at 3:10 PM | by | ()

We are happy to announce the return of NewYorkology to Jaunted for the weekly update on things to do in NYC, courtesy of Amy Langfield.

Despite the fact that New York is already manic with holiday shoppers, last weekend I dove into the belly of the beast, taking a pair of 10-year-olds shopping in Midtown's mega-toy emporiums. The goal was to milk the preteen brain trust for advice for parents needing to know what to avoid and what's worth waiting in line for.

And although we spent an inordinate amount of time looking at massive Lego displays, like an unedited Bugs Bunny cartoon, there are adult-targeted nuggets hidden among the child-friendly entertainment.

Baby on Board

September 25, 2006 at 10:55 AM | by | ()

There is a counterintuitive lesson in this story from over the weekend, about an Egyptian woman gave birth mid-flight on a British Airways plane between London and Boston. After she went into labor, the plane was diverted to Halifax, but before it arrived her baby was born with the help of two medical students and the cabin crew.

The lesson is not that pregnant women should avoid flying, but that the wealthy should always spring for first class seats for their help. You see, while this woman was flying in first class, her maid was in economy, and remained aware of the entire labor process. She found out her boss had given birth after the plane had landed!

See, at the very least she could have gotten her a bulkhead seat.
