Hi everyone. For peace of mind on our upcoming flight I’d like to buy the crelling 27 harness for my autistic 8yr old who is able bodied but might benefit from a more secure strap if he becomes anxious or bored. We are flying with virgin Atlantic and their special assistance team told me they accept the harness on board but we would need to sit in a back row seat with no one behind us as per their own special needs seat.
However Having today checked their website it specifically says they accept the model 27, and they go on to mention the different types of 27 depending on age and size of the child. Then they say, and I quote, ‘it can be used on any seat except aisle, bulk head or exit row seats’ which contradicts what I’ve been told.
Now I’m confused. Is this a mistake on their website? Does anyone have direct experience of an older child using it and have been able to do so on an ordinary row with someone behind them?
The special assistance people aren’t back until Monday and of course I’m anxious to sort our plans and get organised.
Many thanks in advance
