Hi, we have two young children, ages 3 and 5. We are planning a trip this summer. The flight will be about 5 1/2 hours direct. It looks like the aircraft will be a 757 -- seating arrangements are 3 seats on each side of the aisle. I'm looking for feedback on the best way to set up our family for the trip. Is it better to have us as 2 and 2 (one child with one parent)? Or is it better to have us all in a row with the two kids and one parent on one side of the aisle and the other parent right across the aisle?
If the kids are together, they can share a portable DVD player, toys, etc better. However, if we split it to 2 and 2, we can have 2 windows and ensure it is one on one with a parent for each.
