NEW YORK (CBS 2) – Federal aviation officials were considering changing the rules for kids traveling on planes, and that could mean a more costly vacation for families.

A new proposal would require children under 2-years-old to sit in their own seat with a child restraint device,  rather than on their parent’s laps.

Safety advocates said children are at a greater risk for injuries if they’re not in their own seats.

The FAA resisted making this a requirement across the board, saying families may choose not to fly.
