    Default Which airline were you happy with travelling overseas? (With babies and toddlers)

    Hi all, just wondering what airline you were happy with travelling overseas with and they did have enough entertainment for the kids.

    Thanks

    I hated Virgin for overseas travel. Plane felt so small and cramped. Jetstar was the best we found so far

    Aus- Europe we've flown with..

    Singapore Airlines- amasing, plenty of entertainment, good kiddie food, good attendants and ground crew, helpful etc, just very good all round airline

    Qantas- wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. NOTHING nice to say about them. If you can, avoid them.

    We've found both Singapore Airlines and Emirates good for long haul trips with young children, Changi is fabulous for a stop-over.

    Also at both Singapore and Dubai we have utilised short term hotels within the airport themselves (so no need to collect checked in luggage and go through customs etc) for a short rest and shower which has really helped with long haul flights.

    QANTAS - didn't love. Found their staff rude (on our flights) and the whole experience was just blahhh

    Cathay Pacific were fantastic

    Qantas were good for us. As were Singapore airlines, ethihad and Emirates.

    Yep jetstar and virgin rubbish for us too.

    Love Thai Airways, but didn't fly with children with them. Although I've heard they're very good with kids

    Do you recall how long you stayed in the hotel for?

    Agree Virgin were not good with a small child. Jetstar surprisingly were really good.

    Also loved Emirates
