London to Mauritius with a toddler

Hello,

My wife and I are flying with our 20-month old from London to Mauritius with BA in Club World this March (BA 2063/2062) and are wondering which seats would be best. Hopefully, he'll sleep most of the time (fingers crossed) as both are night flights, but it would be good to have a little area of our own. Someone suggested this is the case if you take middle seats and everyone has their screens up.

Any advice would be much appreciated!

Many thanks in advance!

I'd take the middle pair and one of the aisle seats. D/E/F or E/F/G. if you can get the back row of the cabin then even better.

I agree, we always get the middle seats, they are the only adjacent seats where you sit next each other (facing rearwards) and not facing each other. A 20 month year old will not get their own seat, so you just need the two. You will probably find with BA that they pre-allocate families to these seats anyway.

EalingBlue--a 20 month old WILL get his own seat if his parents are smart and choose to buy him one. They can then bring a car seat and travel in comfort, knowing their little one is flying in the safest possible fashion!

'a 20 month old WILL get his own seat if his parents are smart and choose to buy him one' - True, but the question was specifically regarding Club World, which would be a rather expensive option.
