I just got a price drop alert for a flight to Manila that SO and I want to book for Christmas 2016 so I can be with family. Thing is, we will have the baby by then, and I don't know whether I should just book for the two of us, then add the baby later on, or should I just book "baby" with an estimated due date and tell the airline I'll be giving them the details later?
Another dilemma is that booking through a 3rd party vendor (orbitz, priceline) is about $100 cheaper per ticket than booking through the actual airline (Japan Airlines). I am thinking the safer bet for a hassle free experience when adding the baby later on would be to book directly with the airline.
Anyone have experience with this?
