    Default Flying with a double pram in Singapore air lines / Malaysian air lines

    Hi,

    Has anybody travelled with a BJ city select double pram with bassinetts in a air line...

    Would they allow us to take the 2 bassinetts inside the plane?

    Thankssss

    mmek - I don't imagine they will allow you to keep it with you as they will be big and there is no room to put them anywhere. Does the bassinet fold down at all? HAve a travel bag, not sure if bassinet fits though. Use a big red/white blue bag just in case, have a polar fleece padding as some padding in case you have to put it in the hold.
    Definately ask if you can 'gate check' but I am not sure if this is just for strollers. Make sure it is folded down, put it in a carry bag as there is a risk that it will come out in oversize luggage the other end as some places eg Sydney don't gate check/deliver

    No you won't be able to take bassinets on the plane. And being such a bulky pram I doubt they will let you gate check the pram.
    Tbh if I were you I would strongly consider buying or borrowing a double stroller for the trip. I'm sure you are going to run into troubled fitting it in the car/taxi/shuttle bus when u get there too.

    So it seems that i have to consider a side by side stroller for the trip which would support newborns...

    Its not a bad idea though... rather than taking the builky BJ City select...

    Luck of the draw with hate checking sorry! Mostly in aus I've found it's a no

    How old will the babies (twins??) be? Any maclaren double is fine. I have a twin triumph which is lighter than the twin techno. And it lays almost flat. Fine for little bubbas.
