Family boarding

Hello all. There are 4 of us traveling my husband, my one year old, my 13 year old and myself. Are we able to utilize family boarding?

Technically, Family Boarding is for families with children age 6 and under. However, some OPs agents enforce it loosely, and will allow all 4 of you to board. If that's not the case, two of you can board at Family Boarding (one adult with the 1 year old) and the other two at their assigned positions. The first can save seats for the latter. If you'd like, you can check with the OPs agent prior to the start of boarding (they're the agent near the door to the jet way).
