Just because you have a child traveling with you is not grounds for them to waive that fee. That said, in most likelihood, the counter agent checking you in or the automatic assignment algorithm will take into consideration that you are ...

This seems to be very dependent on the airline's policies. Here in the United States, I've flown on a lot of domestic and international airlines (Cathay Pacific, Japan Airlines, ANA, JetBlue, AA, etc.), and most of them allow you to pick your seats during the ticket purchase process.

In the good old days when I was younger and travel was more .... civilized and less reliant on technology, family seating was a non issue. We were 6 kids and two adults and were all seated together. In fact, the row of seats that had baby bassinet hooks were exclusively reserved for families. These days, the only rules that airlines absolutely must follow ...
