JetKids BedBox have released this updated response in light of the announcement and are taking steps to get airlines to reconsider this ban on their product.

“We have reached out to most of these airlines, and have been able to identify the misconceptions they have. Some of them have promised to reconsider BedBox having been consulted on the product, and getter a better understanding. And we have some who have not given us a reply.”

Suffice to say that if you do plan to fly with a sleep-assisting device, it would be prudent to check with the crew before you get your child settled and prevent any upset.

It’s also good to note that any decisions they make are with all passengers’ safety in mind.
