Our expert says:
You do not state if this is regional or International flights.
For regional flights they should take on board their own suitcases which should be filled with surprises to keep them occupied including one or two treats.
Meal times are usually a distraction but remember no one should have hot drinks on either side of the child. There over 5000 cases of coffee and tea burns a year in children flying in US. One can also take their favourite book to read to them while flying. One needs a bit of imagination and discipline. Vomiting can be a sign of motion sickness and getting a window seat over the wing may also help slightly.
For international flights all of the above and depending on time of departure a Valoid Paediatric Suppository and a dose of Aterax syrup helps with sleep!
Important to keep your sense of humour and involve the children in where they are going and what will happen as this all adds to the sense of adventure!
