Flying with Infants.

I am planning a trip this summer and with my recent experience without the kids, there was a baby my sons age on the flight that didnt do so well, so I am worried about my son now. He is 19 months now and will be 2 when we go and I am worried about his ears and what his reaction to the pain will be or how to help him adjust to the popping. Any suggestions or should I just delay this trip til he gets older?
