Finley, as usual, behaved himself well above and beyond expectation. In the 13 hours we were on the plane, he fussed and cried for a total of maybe three minutes. Yup, that's it. And even that was not a full-on wail, just some fussing. BEST. KID. EVER.
Although we booked our tickets through US Airways, the flight was operated by Asiana Airlines, and the services and amenities they provided for parents were fantastic. It started with the "Happy Mom Service," which includes a dedicated check-in counter for less waiting.
However, the best part was the bulkhead seating for the parents (Yay -- Leg room!) and the bassinet for Finley.
All in all, it was one of the most pleasant trans-Pacific flights I've ever had because of the extra legroom. Now, not everything was perfectly hunky-dory, mind you. Changing diapers in those tiny lavatories isn't exactly a piece of cake for a 6'3" dude, but we managed without a major fiasco.
From what I saw on the plane, I'd much rather travel with a 2-month old than a 2-year-old. However, now that we're Stateside for the foreseeable future, who knows when we'll be traveling by plane again...
Finley will just have to wait a while to add another stamp to his passport.
