How uncomfortable is flying with a lap infant? | The DIS Disney Discussion Forums

Enable, I maintain likely back and forth on whether I must purchase a seat for my 1-yr-previous for our November journey to WDW or if I should really just continue to keep her as a lap infant! How awkward is a longish flight with an regular-sized 1YO on your lap? We’re flying from LA, so it’s about 5 several hours. Apart from cost, the other cause I wanted to preserve her on my lap is because that way the 4 of us will have just one row to ourselves, as opposed to splitting into two rows and sitting down subsequent to others outside our team- I figure that will be safer for preventing Covid publicity on the plane. But if it is actually challenging to continue to keep very little kinds contained and tranquil in a shared seat for that extended, should I spring for the extra seats and break up our bash into 2 rows? What would you do? Many thanks in advance for the suggestions!!
