Attention domestic carriers: take a civility tip from the international fleet! On most planes going to Europe and Asia, you can reserve bassinets for babies under one, bathrooms come with changing tables, pillows and blankets are plentiful, and airline goody bags are doled out to junior fliers. Kids' meals, too, try harder: Lufthansa has cucumber race cars and strawberry mousse aliens on the menu. And Virgin Atlantic flight attendants pass out chocolate ice cream just in time for the in-flight movie. Confections at 600 mph-now that's a rush.
