Childrens log books

Anyone know if BA still offer log books to children and allow them to be signed by the captain?

Yes and yes

You usually just have to ask a crew member who can get them for you as long as there are some on board

Don't forget to ask for a sticker too! Most flight crew I flew with had a bundle of stickers they used to hand out too

They had special stickers at Christmas. Also sometimes they have postcards of the aircraft.

The crew, in my experience, are usually quite keen at getting it filled in... My 14 month old daughter just completed her 26th flight (2/3s LH; 1/3 SH), and several times, the captain or FO comes out to say hi, irrespective of what cabin we are in.

LHR-YYZ is our most frequent route, and the captain have been on same flight 2 times with us, and wrote a special note. Have several post cards and stickers too... At the moment, my daughter is just trying to eat the logbook, but hopefully she will appreciate when she is older

Thanks for the info and tips.

I'm glad they still offer the log books and will remember to ask about postcards/stickers. It will be my (9yo) daughter's first ever flight so it will be nice for her to have a souvenir.

Most flights are the annual trip to the Grandparents in SA!

Here is a BA Concorde one by that aviation blogger Sam Chui. I am thinking of doing the same myself and asking it to be taken to the flight deck each flight to be filled out!
I am sure BA's flight crew are extremely grateful that I don't submit them to this amount of paperwork on each of my flights!!!

I think that's probably why it's best to use the BA log books, they may not know you are 37 (or whatever it is). There is one permanently youthful flyer on BA who has found some way of collating all is log books into one, via a professional bookbinder. He thereby gets away with it, because the captains flick back through the entries to see the names of those who trained and worked with them. "Goodness, there's old Biffo, last I heard he was shacked up in Thailand running a fish farm".
