The DD's and I have decided to tag along on a business trip with DH this weekend. I haven't flown with DD2 yet. Seating was never an issue before since there was only 3 of us, now that there is 4, I'm not sure how to break us up. My area only has smaller planes, so three seats across is the max.

Do you try to put mom and two DC in one row, or have one child with each parent?

There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way.

I would do a dc and parent set up. I too live near a small airport and often it's a row with one seat and a row with 2 seats. My dd is almost 7 and wouldn't want to sit in the one seat with my and another dc in the 2 row.

We sat 2 on one side of the isle, 2 on the other (Rivka was a lap baby : )

It didn't really matter though except for take off / landing. The kids played muscial chairs the whole way, sometimes wantign to sit by me, sometimes by dh.

I would put each parent on and aisle seat across from each other and a child in the center seat next to each. That way if you need to pass things or switch off you can do it easily.
