Boston Logan Airport/Southwest Airlines
We traveled Southwest Airlines via Logan airport to Houston Hobby on May 4th & May 9th. Now I cannot believe I am even going to begin to review traveling with Children because we were headed to Texas for a family wedding. There were 4 of us traveling, myself, my mother, my 6-year-old daughter & my 1-year-old son. We had 5 suitcases, 3 carry-ons, a car seat, a booster seat & a stroller. We checked all 5 bags(1 was full with just baby gear) and the booster seat. I wore my 1-year-old through the airport and everything else was stuffed on the stroller. If you have never traveled while baby wearing, you have no idea how accommodating TSA is. You get to go through the old metal detector. They do not make you remove the child for security. They will swab your hands for explosive residue & may go through your bag if you have liquids (my new pack of wipes caused a search for us). Now Southwest’s terminal at Logan airport is amazing because they have a wonderful little play area to get the kids energy out. I usually fly out of Providence airport, but I’ll be heading to Boston from now on with how amazing that play area was. Southwest I have always found to be very very understanding and helpful with children. If you choose to keep your baby as a lap baby, they will make you remove them from the carrier for takeoff and landing. It is inconvenient but it is a regulation. Southwest is great when traveling with kids because if the flight isn’t full you can sometimes get an empty middle seat, which was our luck on the flight home!
