Japan Airlines is introducing a women-only area on all flights to Honolulu. Four seats in the back of the economy section will be reserved for women to apply make-up or breastfeed babies.

That's not the only thing airlines are doing to be more kid friendly. Etihad Airways has launched a dedicated in-flight child care assistance program for families. That program introduces a new Flying Nanny on board long haul flights.

Each Flying Nanny aims to provide a 'helping hand' to families and unaccompanied minors. During the past two months 300 Etihad Airways cabin crew members have completed enhanced training for the role. A further 60 will be trained in September and 500 Flying Nannies will be working across Etihad Airways flights by the end of 2013.
