“Traveling with young children can already be very stressful for parents and when you can’t sit together on a flight, it only makes this process more difficult." Davis said in statement. "All we're asking is for airlines to do a better job of accommodating parents ahead of time so we can make flying a better experience for families and other passengers aboard."
Nadler and Davis previously introduced H.R. 3334, the Families Flying Together Act of 2015, to direct airline carriers to notify passengers traveling with minors if there are no seats next to each other to accommodate them and ensure, if possible, that families are seated together on flights.
The current bill would allow airlines to charge passengers an additional fee if they are placed in higher-priced, roomier seats.
