As you can see in the article, our China deal for $999 has completely sold out, with 161 passengers booked, but we still have about 25 spots available for tours for only $100 more at $1099. But hurry, because this deal just opened yesterday, and it won’t take long before it’s all booked up!

Jen suggested some tips for flying with a baby and keeping your seat neighbors happy. But not only am I a travel agent and constant traveler, I’m a mom too. So I’ve had my own experiences flying with a baby, and I’ll let you in on a secret: It’s not that bad. For the full scoop, take a look at the comment I left on Jen Leo’s post.
