Any airlines with bassinets on LAX-JFK

Does anyone know of any airlines that offer bassinets on LAX-JFK?

Others will likely have better knowledge, but I don't know of any airlines who offer bassinets on that route. Is there a specific reason you require a bassinet? Will you have a car seat for the trip or not?

I don't believe there is a domestic airline offering bassinet at all.

UA has been reported to have bassinets in J on their premium transcon service and in Y on the high density 777. I'm flying EWR-LAX // SFO-EWR in a week and will update this thread with a report.

I can confirm bassinets in 1AB and 5AB on UA's premium transcon service in the 752.

It's a really rare thing in the US as very, very few people want or need them, preferring an approved car seat because it is far safer. But, those UA aircraft xEWR do have them.

American airline allocates them on some flights. I would recommend you to call them once to be sure.

There are some on the specific route in question. But, they are disfavored in the US because virtually every safety study on the subject rates them as the least safe means of transporting an infant.
