Ticketing When Traveling With Children – United Airlines

Family seating arrangement

United Airlines tries its best to allot the seat to children under 15 years with an adult member of the family. 


United offers a limited number of bassinets on international aircraft only. Bassinets are large in size that can hold an infant of 10 kg or 22 pounds. These bassinets are available on some selected aircraft.

Passengers can request a bassinet by connecting the United Airlines customer service number. The airline will provide an adjoining seat to the adult member of the family traveling with an infant. Bassinets are limited in number, that’s why it is highly suggested to request bassinet early for your flight.
