No bassinet in F 747-8i

Hi, looking to potentially fly KE for the first time in 2020 or 2021. Will be an award ticket and looking at either F or J and naturally would love to fly F on the 747-8. However, we’ve got a baby on the way and he is planned to go on this trip. Based on my research, looks like the 747-8 in F nor J has bassinets. Can someone confirm if they have experienced otherwise? For the A380, I see bassinets for J but not F again. Can someone confirm if they’ve experienced otherwise and have seen a bassinet in F on the A380? Thanks in advance!

You can confirm this with KE but I do not believe the 747-8i F or J seats are Bassinet designed. The Economy bulkhead seats are the primary options for bassinets.


Also be aware with KE awards an infant is charged 10% of the revenue ticket cost to take a look at that.

Thank you. Wow, had no idea about that infant charge. Seeing now that Is fairly common among most airlines....bummer.

Nope, it's standard that lap kids are charged 10% of the fare for the cabin (although whether it's the cheapest fare at the time or ticketing or the cheapest FULL fare is YMMV) plus 100% of the applicable fees and taxes on any international flight/itinerary. This includes upgrades and awasrd tickets, although a few carriers permit payment in miles for lap infants.
