4mo refusing to nurse during the day time- help?

I work full time and DH stays home with our 4 month old. Up until this week, she did fine switching between bottles during the day and breast in the evenings/night/weekends. Now, she will not breastfeed during the day (I am on vacation for Christmas, its been a constant struggle this week) unless I lay down with her alone and get her really calm (basically nighttime conditions.) Any suggestions? we are flying in two days, and if this continues, we are going to have to pump and bottle feed all through the airport

Could it have to do with being distracted? Mine was 100% breastfed but wouldn't nurse unless she was laying down or really sleepy from about 4-8 months. They become so much more aware of what's going on at 4 months. Even a window was too much distraction for her. NIP was pretty much out of the question so I'm sure she wouldn't have nursed on a plane either, unless she was exhausted or starving.
