    I asked a question regarding which digital log book to use for our little one a while ago. swissdiver asked about progress on the original thread but I’m not sure my reply on that thread shows so here’s an update if anyone is interested…

    Our little one turned 3 last week completing flight 60 DXB-LHR & 61 LHR-GVA on his birthday. In the end we used myflightrader24 and I have to say it’s brilliant albeit i’d like to add photos from the flights which I can’t seem to do. We also use the sky flyers book for all BA flights as that’s the main airline. The book is more for his memory box as I’m sure they won’t be available for much longer.
    We’ve gone from flying a mixture of First/Business while he was under 2 (due to the low cost of an under 2] to flying in economy due to 3 (almost) full fares and not being able to justify that 3rd business seat for a +2 year old. Both parents being Gold with BA helps with the seat selection and we’ve purposely booked the A380 & more recently A350 with BA to ensure some good seat sets for travelling as a 4 (with granny) on A380 top deck/rear cabin (70AB & 71AB) and as a 3 on the A350 (31ABC). Interesting it seems that still with a high CIV when travelling with a child the chance of an upgrade, even to WTP+ is slim. We’ve received just 1 W to WTP+ on DME-LHR in the summer.

    He’s flown in/out of some interesting long haul airports including; LAX, LIH, DME, SVO, HKG, SIN, DXB, DOH, SYD, BNE and OOL. I’ve (or tried to) attach a visual of how his flight log looks up until last week. If it didn’t attach he’s done 156,280KMS, 9.6days in air, 14 airports, 4 continents and 13 aircraft types with 5 airlines (BA, Qatar, Qantas, EasyJet and Aeroflot).

    Makes me think I should have done this for myself a few years back 🙂



    Nice one and I’m sure he’ll treasure it later in life.
    Personally I also use the Flightradar24 logbook and find it very good. Put in the flight number and the plane type comes up automatically, though I’m rather behind in adding my flights.

    What I also have, and do keep up to date, is a Pilot’s logbook. Mine is quite old but still not full, and it started when I learnt to fly and went on to obtain my PPL. I no longer fly but still add the commercial flights. All by hand but I actually prefer it to an electronic one.
