Laura Hannah, a native of Ayrshire, Scotland, who has worked for the airline for over six years, offers expert advice.

If you think your kids will sleep through a late flight or an overnight flight, think again.

Plan your flight to coincide with mealtimes or naps to reduce the risk of public tantrums.

To avoid sleep-deprived meltdowns on the plane, make sure a child gets a good night’s sleep before a morning flight.

While on the ship,

Allow your children to enjoy the onboard entertainment.
