    Here at Kooshy Kids, we're dedicated to making your family travels as comfortable and stress-free as possible. The above airlines have engaged with us through various channels, including verbal communication, email correspondence, direct messages, and online chats, to confirm their acceptance of our inflatables when used according to their safety requirements.

    Many of these airlines have detailed their safety criteria for using our product on their official websites which you should check before purchasing. These safety guidelines are often in alignment with our recommended usage instructions. It's our pleasure to share that these airlines are integral to our Approved Airline Money Back Guarantee.

    Please note that codeshare flights are not included in the Approved Airline Money Back Guarantee unless the operating carrier (the owner of the plane you fly on) as well as the marketing carrier (the airline you purchased from) are on our approved list. 

    To assist you further, we recommend capturing a screenshot of this list found here, where the validity dates are listed in the first row of the document. This documentation could prove valuable should you encounter any challenges during your flight and need to submit a refund claim due to airline refusal. It acts as evidence that the airline was part of the approved list at the time of your travel date (not your purchase date).

    As always, we encourage thorough preparation. Please remember to contact your airline before you purchase and then again before you travel to confirm their acceptance. Keep in mind that airline policies can evolve without advance notice. By confirming with them, you can stay informed about their latest guidelines and ensure a seamless travel experience for both you and your child once onboard. We also recommend that once you receive written confirmation of their acceptance that you print the correspondence and take it with you on the flight/s for peace of mind.

    Airlines that have not approved any plane bed, hammock or foot rest devices:

    The list provided below pertains to airlines that have not officially approved (and in some cases prohibited) the utilisation of the Kooshy Kids Kooshion and all other similar plane bed/footrest products. Therefore, the likelihood of being able to use the Kooshy Kids Kooshion and other inflatable bedsore hammocks that occupy the footwell or attach to any part of the aircraft is minimal. While there have been many instances where the product's use was permitted by the crew on these airlines, it's important to note that such decisions are at the discretion of individual crew members.

    Our ongoing efforts involve collaborating with all the mentioned airlines to encourage them to evaluate and consider the adoption of our product. This endeavor is driven by the fact that our product adheres to safety standards advocated by authoritative airline advisory bodies, including IATA and other aviation regulators.

    Airlines that have not approved any sleep device include:

    • Asiana Airlines
    • British Airways
    • Emirates
    • Fiji Airways
    • Jetstar Australia
    • Hawaiian Airlines
    • Lufthansa
    • Qantas
    • Qatar (recent change)

    • Turkish Airlines
    • United Airlines
    Please click here, to find a detailed breakdown of the most recent success rates for each of the above airlines, as well as airlines where the decision to permit rests with the crew. 


    To enhance the likelihood of a positive outcome, consider calling your airline and informing them of your intention to use the Kooshy Kids product/s during the flight. Specifically, mention that you plan to use the product when the seatbelt sign is off and that your child will be secured with a seatbelt while in their seat and while using the product and that it will only be used as per their recommended safety requirements.

    By providing advance notice to the airline, you can ensure that they make a record in your booking, effectively informing the cabin crew of your intended use. This proactive step helps to streamline communication and ensures that everyone is on the same page when it's time to fly.

    Moreover, this presents a favourable moment to verify your family's seating arrangement and make any necessary requests for tailored services, such as a kids meal etc, to enhance the comfort of your family's flight experience.

    Your preparation and communication will contribute to a smoother and more enjoyable flying experience for you and your child.

    Alternative Options for Non-Approved Airlines

It serves as an excellent alternative for non-approved airlines, ensuring a restful and enjoyable travel experience.We are not aware of any specific restrictions for this product as it does not occupy the footwell, rather acts as a cushion in their own seat space.

Each bundle includes the Kooshy Kids Kooshion, Kooshy Kloud, and our convenient Smart Pump Pro v2.

This bundle is extremely popular especially where there is any doubt -it offers peace of mind.
