Sharing a J seat...?

By S | Aug 15, 2018, 11:09 AM
I was recently on a flight to London in VS.
I noticed that there was a family of 3 that kept rotating and “sharing” 1 busn class seat opposite me. They had obv purchased 2 Y seats and 1 J seats but were taking turns coming up front and napping etc.
This was clearly annoying other passengers, but the crew didn’t seem to mind. Surely this is not something allowed right?

I have seen that happen quite a bit. Half the family in Y and the other in J. Not something I would do but others do it.

I don’t mind if they swap seats for long periods of time but a constant changing procession would not be nice.

I thought they were not supposed to be able to enter the area!
Anyway, I would do it too, but obviously would take care not to disturb anyone else. But gee, how bad could it be, whats the difference if one person gets up for a slash and another person comes back.

As long as they are not all hanging around makiing a commotion, I think most people wouldnt even notice.

Was recently in F to London, and a married couple kept swapping between a F and Y seat. He explained to the crew that they were sharing the care of their baby in Y, and the crew did not bat an eyelid. I did not mind either. Do not think anyone else did.

Have seen this many times over the years. American use a seat in row 1 on their trans Pac flights as a rotating flight crew rest seat which is much the same.

We're thinking of doing this: having the baby in Y while the other parent sleeps in J.

First world problem. I don't think it's an issue at all.

Look forward to the days when the kid is old enough to go UM in Y, and you can both fly J...

Clever thinking really, as long as they don’t disturb others too much or have to make someone move in they are seated in a 2-2-2 configuration, as others have said it it something I keep in mind when travelling long distances with the children.
