    We might be taking a trip when DS is a month over 2, and yes we'll be paying for the seat. I have always been told to take his birth cert, but have never been asked for it (he's fairly small for his age). I wouldn't risk fibbing about his age and being caught and not being able to fly, or have to pay last minute prices for a ticket.

    We do a big trip a couple of weeks before each child turns two, that way we don't have to pay for a seat. I wouldn't have the guts to do a dodgy like that. I have enough anxiety about flying with kids

Its just to prove their age?
    According to my work, if they really believe you are lying, they will ask you to get a copy faxed or emailed.. or they can call your GP and check.
    if you really could not get a copy and it seemed like you were genuine..it would be let go..
    but really it comes down to safety.

    Yes it's just to prove their age. I think you need aproof they are your child or that you have permission if you are going overseas though.

    They can refuse to let you onboard if they suspect you're lying. I remember reading a story about a lady who was free-birthing/no antenatal care and she was refused entry onto a flight as a she couldn't prove that she was under their gestation cut-off (she didn't actually know exactly how many weeks pregnant she was either) or that she was medically fit to fly. Slightly off topic but make sure you carry documentation for flights even if you think its not necessary.
