We purchased this for our 1 year on a transatlantic flight and it was everything that we needed! He fell asleep fairly easily and was comfortable on it. The flight crew had to wake him due to turbulence, but that's the airline policy ... otherwise, he would have slept the entire flight!
I’ll never fly without our Flyaway bed from now on. It’s super easy to put together, very durable and makes the flight so much more comfortable for our 2 year old. Highly recommend for anyone flying with toddlers.
The beds were great for long international flight for my 6 month old and my 3 year toddler. Good material, high quality. Customer service was prompt and quick as well.
Was a great flight with our little guy - he could sleep & play without losing his toys! Love that it's a flat-bed & the mattress is really high-quality & comfy. Great investment & we look forward to using it on our next flights.
The bed made such a difference on our 9.5 hour flight for so many reasons. My daughter had her own space that was bigger than just the seat/tray and was able to lie down when she was tired. She slept perfectly. The bed was a great germ barrier for the airplane seat and I loved that you can wipe it down. Also the bed deflates very small so it was light and easy to put in our carry-on. Highly recommend.
From our experience it has been more than worth it! We flew with WestJet and our 3.5 year old slept comfortably on the flight.
The Flyaway Kids Bed is an inflatable airplane cushion that works to transform your child’s airplane seat into a toddler bed for the plane.
It works slightly different than the other inflatable travel footrests on the market which work as a seat extender by fitting in the floor area between your child’s seat the seat in front of them. Instead, the Flyaway Kids Bed covers both your toddlers seat and the area between, but it keeps the floor space available!
Once installed your toddler can use it play, eat and sleep on the plane.
Though it’s a similar idea to what we’ve seen already like the Fly Tot, Plane Pal or Kooshy Kids inflatable cushions, it’s a little bit different with some definite improvements.
If anything, I’d say that it combines the best of the Fly Tot inflatable airplane bed for toddlers and kids with the JetKids BedBox (a wheeled carry-on that also turns the airplane seat into a bed for children), while reducing the bulk. We love our Flyaway Kids Bed & recommend it to all our expat friends in Canada!
The first and foremost thing I have to say about the design of the Flyaway Kids Bed is it trumps all others when it comes to comfort for the kids. The Flyaway Kids Bed is essentially a blow up mattress that goes on top of the airplane seat and fills part of the legroom space as well. This set up creates a flat soft bed so kids can lie down and catch that all important beauty sleep.
It has a clever support stand that hold the mattress in place. The entire bed and support stand inflates in 90 seconds with a handy little pump that doesn't take up much space in hand luggage.
The other good thing about the pump is it’s not noisy so it doesn’t draw attention when setting it up. We loved the little bag it comes with as it packs up into a good size for hand luggage.
Once the comfy kids airplane bed was all set up, we used one the blanket and pillow provided by the airline to settle our little one down. He went back to sleep instantly.
The reason this product is more comfortable than others is because it’s completely flat but also full of air. With other products they are not quite as thick so my kids could feel all the lumps and bumps in the seat. This is definitely the best thing about the Flyaway Kids Bed!
We used this product for our toddler on the outbound flight and our 5 year old had a chance to use it on the way back. Our girl is a tall 5 year old so she obviously couldn’t stretch out but she was able to articulate that she found it more comfortable than other ones she had tried.
I really like the finish on this product, I didn’t even feel it needed a cover. The material was fine to sleep directly on with their PJ’s.
My four-and six-year-old, both loved the comfort and robustness of the flat, one-piece Flyaway mattress. Staying exactly in place helps keep children slumbering – which is what every parent wants on a long-haul flight. The Flyaway’s killer app is its holistic design: with the mattress resting on top of the plane seat’s base, any child lying on it benefits from one seamless, 80cm flat ‘bed’. We flew London to Sydney via Singapore, with Singapore Airlines.
We flew from New Zealand to Europe on the longest haul flight in the world with AIr New Zealand with a 4 and 2 year old. It was absolutely fantastic with my two Flyaway Kids Beds. I could put them side by side in a four row and the kids had a perfect relaxed & healthy flight! Absolutely fantastic! Best investment ever for travelling families with young kids. Thanks @FlyawayDesigns for the best design ever! Easy to set up, inflate and put away. Just brilliant! We previously used Jet Kids Bedbox, for our long flights, but they take up so much space and we always ended up carting them around because my girls were to tired to ride them. The matress on the bedbox is also really flimsy and uncomfortable for my daughter. I'm just so glad we have Flyaway Kids Bed for future flights!
I used this product on Qatar Flights from Perth to Greece for my wedding. I was honestly so nervous about flying with a 3.5 and 1.5 year old and how I'd be able to help comfort, change nappy, feed etc with a sleeping child on my lap, or even get up myself. Luckily I booked ahead and got bulk head so the youngest had a bassinet and fell asleep instantly. My 3 year old got to eat her dinner, and watch movie laying down which got her to sleep. She's a really light sleeper and in the past he's woken herself from the " head drop" that kids do when they fall asleep. This product gave her her own space, and place to stretch out without the numb bottom most kids complain about on flights - the ones you see walking up an down the aisle. I'm so excited for when we can all travel again so I can buy my youngest one now she's old enough to have her own seat!!
We flew with a 3-year-old flying on economy class on Etihad for 9-hour flights.
Overall it has improved our journey and it’s a must-have in our travel bag!
During sleep time, he could comfortably stretch out his legs and slept without any trouble. The little guy slept during the whole flight and we don’t need to rock him to sleep anymore.
It only took us a minute or two to inflate it like what it says on the packaging.
Whilst waiting to take off, we placed the Flyaway Kids Bed just under our feet where it perfectly fits. As soon as the plane took off, we set-up the bed and inflated it with the pump. We successfully inflated it without having to cause any trouble.
I would like to give 4 thumbs (mine and my daughter’s) for this product! It's amazing! It helped me a lot through long flights on ANA - 27 hours, as I traveled alone with my 2 yo daughter. She slept, rested and played very well on the Flyway Kids Bed. It's easy to install and deflate. I'm so glad my husband gave it to me as a Christmas present!
We flew from London to Australia with 4yr old, 2yr old and 7 month old. I was dreading it!! We flew with Qatar airlines who were very happy for us to use the beds and they were unbelievably amazing. The boys loved them and were so much more comfortable even when just sitting. They both slept better than we could have hoped for. Apparently other people were asking the cabin crew where the beds came from because they wanted them for their own children! I really could not recommend them more highly and will never fly without them. Also super easy to blow up and pack away. Thank you so much, I’m so glad we got them!!
I bought this for my 3.5 year old for his first ever flight. We flew overnight from Atlanta to London and would not have had the same experience without the flyaways kids bed! It inflated so easily and my son fell right asleep and slept the entire flight on the bed! The design is so well done and the quality is top notch. I was hesitant about the price, but it was worth every penny! A lady sitting near me was so impressed she asked for the information to buy the bed for each of her twin granddaughters! The flight back during the day made for a very fun play area with the bed inflated and a place for him to put his feet up. He specifically asked me to “get his airplane bed” for him. The flight attendant noted what a great idea it was. Thank you for an amazing product. I can not recommend it enough!
We flew overnight home from Hawaii on United Airlines, and we did not have any trouble using our Flyaway Kids Bed in the window seat. It inflated very quickly using the hand pump included (which is a big improvement from those cushions that use the built-in air vents). Our almost 2-yr-old slept well on it. I recommend having a small travel pillow along too. Our plane didn't have them so he used my neck pillow and slept the whole flight. I would buy this again!
This product is amazing. My child was able to sleep and relax with no issues. The set up during flight was also very fast! I bought two for both my kids and would highly recommend to anyone who travels long distances.
Worked perfectly! We bought 2. One for our 4 year old who is 44” tall and slept comfortably. The 2nd one for our 1 year old. They pumped up in a matter of 2 Minutes and was easy to still use seat belt when needed.
We flew EVA air and these flyaway beds are approved for use in window seats (as long as not exit row) and in the middle two seats of the 4seat configuration. I will probably purchase one more for the baby pretty soon. Thank you for developing this product!
My daughter could sleep thru the long flight to Asia. She woke up full of energy. Thanks Flyaway bed. She will pass it down to her brother later. Highly recommend!
We were flying with a 9 month old on Delta international flights with layovers. In hopes of keeping his great sleep schedule, we wanted to find an option for him to sleep through the night on the plane. Bingo! We also wanted something that would last for years rather than pop after a few flights. This is well made, provides great functionality, is well thought out, and operates as described. It made a great bed both in the bulkhead row and a regular row (both in economy class). The order in which the chambers fill means that it can really accommodate almost any seat size and distance from seat back to seat back. Our kiddo slept like a champ during the night flight, and it was a great spot for him to hang out and play during the day flight. Delta had no problems with us setting it up, and a couple attendants even took down the name to recommend it to future passengers. I've already recommended it to several friends who have used it for long flights and loved it too! So grateful this exists and went into production before our last trip.
Awesome product. Really helped all of us get a good rest on the plane because our baby was comfortable.
I flew from US to India on Delta/KLM and had an awesome experience with the bed. Very easy to inflate/deflate and the little one slept peacefully.
We recently purchased the Flyaway Bed for a 7-hour transatlantic flight. The bed was our salvation! Since our preschooler is too short to sit comfortably on an airplane seat, we set up the bed for the entire daytime flight. She loved it. She could sit comfortably, lie down for rest periods, and she even had room to play with toys, all while buckled in. On our overnight "red-eye" back home, our daughter slept for 5 of the 6.5 hours. She wasn't a huge fan of the small spaces provided by economy seats (legs bent while sleeping) and was somewhat restless for the last 2 hours of sleep, but the Flyaway Bed was a million times better than any attempt to sleep sitting up or slouching on Mum! I would highly recommend this product. (We flew on WestJet. No complaints from the airline attendants!)
Purchased this for my 4 year old daughter. It was the best investment ever. It is so easy to set up and easy to store as well. Very light and sturdy (I was also using it to rest my both feet up while my daughter is using it.
The only problem is trying to convince my daughter that its time to deflate the bed for landing.
Love it and been recommending it to other moms and dads too.
