Compare which airlines offer kids’ meals, in-flight diaper changing tables, discounted child fares, stroller gate check, free early check-in, kid-friendly entertainment, Wi-Fi, and the ability to heat a baby bottle. The airlines are AirTran Airways, American Airlines, Delta, Frontier Airlines, JetBlue, Southwest Airlines, United Airlines, US Airways, and Virgin America.
