Reply To: Obnoxious kids in Business Class

Back to Forum


I couldn’t agree more about badly behaved kids and screaming babies! While some of the reasons may be due to apathy from parents, babies encountering genuine discomfort, etc., we should actually encourage parents to take their kids on board only if there is a genuine need or if they can afford to do so. It is really unfair to expect other full paying passengers to put up with these discounted passengers. How about airlines imposing full fare or extra tax for these passengers? After all, they may incur cost from soiled seats, providing milk or infant food, toys, games, etc to these young passengers paying discounted fares? The airlines also suffer loss of goodwill from full paying passengers. If the situation is bad in the business class, imagine how much worse it is in the cramped economy seats having to put up with these young passengers? So airlines, how about this proposition?
