Have you ever boarded a flight and not liked to your seat because an infant is seated next to you?  Well, Japan Airlines has a solution to our long ongoing problem. 

The airlines has decided to display a baby face on the seats where an infant is seated to save you the wailing. The airlines will now let you choose your seats depending upon your comfort zone with infants. 

According to Japan Airlines’ website, “Passengers traveling with children between 8 days and 2 years old who select their seats on the JAL website will have a child icon displayed on their seats on the seat selection screen. This lets other passengers know a child may be sitting there.”

However, the child icon will not be displayed when either the seats are booked as part of a tour or using award tickets or seats are selected through means other than the JAL website. The icon may also not be displayed correctly if there is a change in the aircraft.

The news first came to light after a user tweeted about it.
