Fights in an airplane

Travelling with children on an airplane is not always a walk in the park. When she was a baby it was easier, we just gave her something to drink during take off and landing, and she was fine. But now she wants to move all the time and she does not understand all the restrictions and procedures of air - travelling yet. Our flight back from Spain was one to remember (to say the least) as our kid refused to stay seated and strapped in her seatbelt during landing. The flight attendant started to really get unfriendly (read: rude) with us, as we did not get our daughter to stay put. At 2 year's old they have their own seat and they cannot sit on their mother's lap anymore - and our girl did not grasp this concept and went in to a hyperventilating modus while we tried to get the steward to give us the little seatbelt to keep her safe anyway. She refused to do so (because procedure is procedure) so I put my daughter on my lap strapped together in my seatbelt until we landed. But really, that flying B**CH damn.
So back home, we tried to find a solution, as O is really thin she slides though the seatbelts in planes and so there is no way to keep her in her seat without things getting nasty. So we went on the internet, and luckily found out that we were not the only parents with this problem. We bought a seatbelt adapted to her age and certified for safety that keeps her in the seat as in a car seat.
We used it for the first time this flight to France and except one little crisis she behaved well and all the stewards smiled at us.
Also, a portable dvd player with her favourite cartoons helps
