I'm not too sure what you expect BA to do if there are no seats left which are together. It looks as if everyone has reserved before you. You appear to have left it too late.

Your 13yo is not counted as a child as you would have booked an adult fare. BA would not know his/her age. That is why you have not been allocated seating 5 days before. Allocated seating is only for families with children under 12

Is it really such a good idea to fly if your 13yo is petrified and you vomit. I think I would have investigated other travel means. Would it not be a better idea to abandon your trip now, if your anxiety is so great and you show this before boarding you could be denied boarding. Also as you say the weather is going to be so bad (previous post) doesn't sound too good a holiday.

If your problems are so great you should have booked seats straight away.

Good luck.

I wouldn't bother going if I were you. Doesn't sound like you're going to enjoy yourself.

You usually vomit on flights yet you are quite prepared to chomp your way through a full English breakfast on board?

I think your fear of flying is kicking in big style and you are using the not so problematic seating issue to try to get it out of your system.

Calm down. You'll be on and off the flight before you know it and it will be character building for your 13 year old. Get up and go see them when seat belt signs have been switched off.

Common sense should tell you if you have booked an adult fare your 'child' is classed as an adult. How would a computer know that he/she is a child? AFAIK all airlines treat 'children' as adult if they are over 12. At least you know this now.

Maybe you and your child should invest and go on a course for nervous passengers. It's supposed to have a high success rate. BA do them. Have you passed on you fear to your child?

Nemesis, try to have a good trip.

I do think you should take the BA fear of flying course as suggested.

Post back to let us know how you got on.
