Hi
I was reading about the CARES harness and was wondering if you know if it fits the Air Asia premium flat bed seats?

Hello Sarah,

Thanks for your CARES query, the Air Asia premium flat beds look very comfy!

We’ve not had any specific feedback on CARES being used in these seats but there appears to be no reason why they shouldn’t work.

The CARES is highly adjustable to fit larger and smaller children and different size airline seats including most of the new cocoon type economy and business seats. The key is having enough clear space to place the main anchor strap over the top of the seat and down to an appropriate level just above the child’s shoulders The diagram below appears to show there is clear space to place the CARES main red anchor strap.

(CARES red anchor strap will be installed approx midway down seat back and loops over the top of the seat.)

In bed formation, the CARES harness should still work and you will most likely need to loosen the shoulder straps to provide the extra length required while a child sleeps. The Air Asia bed format looks like this:
