My little guy did great on our trip. He was almost 2 when we went to PV last year and the thing that was the biggest life saver was the portable DVD player and snacks. I took the DVD player with movies he had never seen, but were themes he liked (Max & Ruby's Halloween, a Nickelodeon montage of kid shows etc.). We picked up some snacks at the airport and took his empty sippy cup with us through security and got him some milk at McDonalds and he was fine.
One more little trick I learned was to take some toys. I have been saving all of his McDonalds happy meal toys. I don't show them to him or open them. (Poor guy - he doesn't even know Happy Meals come with toys) LOL!!
I throw a couple of the unopened toys in the carryon bag and when he got fussy I would pull out one. He totally thought it was new because I made a big deal of opening it and it entertained him for a while. If he lost it, it was no big deal either.
If she is going alone I can see where she would feel overwhelmed. With a little bit of planning she will be okay. Kids at that age are tricky. My kids were both very active at 1 yr. They liked to scream just to hear their own voice. Hopefully the flight isn't too long.
I'm wondering what Gravol is myself.

Oh and on a side note, hiding happy meal toys! It's devilishly brilliant.
I have to laugh a little because fsil invited me to brunch on Sunday which i think is my surprise shower. I wonder if everyone will stop fighting by then. lol
