Can you have two infants in lap next to each other in Business?

by on Aug.17, 2022, under Airlines

We recently put this question to the test on American Airlines. We booked two business class seats with our twin infants. The airplane was a three cabin plane. Online you could select the seats next to each other with no issues. Right up until check in, they swapped one of the seats to another row. This could have been automated or someone noticed the common issue this causes. The standard practice is you cannot have two infants in lap in the same row due to number of oxygen masks. There has to be enough for each passenger. This applies mainly to economy class. You would have to buy the third seat to have one infant take that seat.

After calling the airline about this issue for Business Class, multiple people said it was okay for this particular plane and flight. It seems like even though there are two seats, there are a standard four masks above. We had to ask passengers to swap but again we then ran into issue on board with the attendants. We told them how we called and said it was okay. Off they went to confer and gave us approval after they looked up in the airplane manual. Your mileage may vary depending on the flight but it was all good for us with some debate.
