Charging for Babies on Laps
You're charged for traveling with your baby, even if she's sitting on your lap. While your lap is currently free on U.S. domestic flights, the infant fee for international flights is generally 10% of a full-price ticket. That charge might soon become standard for all flights, predicts George Hobica of AirfareWatchdog.com. Irish airline Ryanair already charges £20 for babies on any flight, domestic or international.
