Now Japan Airlines has revealed a new tool that lets you dodge infants when you book your seat.

"Passengers traveling with children between 8 days and 2 years old who select their seats on the JAL website will have a child icon displayed on their seats on the seat selection screen," reads the airline's website.

The move will be a boon for travelers who like to avoid babies.

Before babyphobes get too excited, Japan Airlines cautions that the baby map will not display child icons in certain situations.

If you are taking a small child on your trip, JAL offers a number of services to make your experience better.

The airline provides a number of strollers for rent in the airport, and will accept baby strollers as checked baggage for free.

Passengers traveling with infants also enjoy priority boarding, and offers hot water for bottles as well as diaper changing facilities on board. »
