Mrs. Hill,

I can relate to your story! I flew from Manchester to Newark with my 18 month-old-son (a few years ago). I had an FAA approved car seat and I paid a huge sum of money for my son’s own seat on the flight. The flight attendants were extremely rude to me and kept demanding to know if I had reserved a seat for my son (yes) and kept insisting that I should have checked the car seat. As if I wanted to fly across the Atlantic with a squirming toddler in my lap, much less put his safety at risk! Perhaps this is they way British flights are? Do you think maybe American flights are different?
