Airport Diversion Guide

Lets face it. Flying with little ones can be a big pain in the butt. You have to bring half your house, hope the portable dvd player has enough battery life to entertain you squirmy little toddler and hope and pray that a bout of explosive diarrhea doesn't suddenly appear mid flight. Getting through the terminal is a juggling act of strollers, car seats, and luggage. You wind your way through security with an impatient man with a briefcase and an attitude grumbling behind you because you are not as time efficient as he would like since your daughter does not feel that she should have to be security compliant and take off her light up Dora the Explorer shoes. Finally  you reach the gate only to see your flight has been delayed. You contemplate throwing yourself on the ground, kicking and screaming but then remember the Airport Diversion Guide! You head to the toddler play area and breath a sigh of relief. Crisis averted.

Cheap Flights has put together a great guide for parents with family friendly security lines, play areas, and fun diversions and some of the most popular airports in the US and the rest of the world. So if you have a layover in Vegas or a delay in Boston, they have you covered. Bless you Cheap Flights. Bless you for saving us some sanity for when we get on the actual plane!

awesome post Sharlene. I HATE flying with kids. Hate it. Hate it. Hate it. I would rather drive 409530485309 hours on a strech of desert highway. Glad someone thought of this.
