Infant seats in CX business classBack to Forum
Anonymous1 Oct 2010
Has anyone heard what we heard that CX is planning to offer specially designed infant seats to fit their new generation Business class seats? Would appreciate any insights as to how they’ll look or when they’ll be available.1 Oct 2010
Well you obviously dont travel as much as I do in Business class as I am sick of kids and can only recall one adult in the last 2 years so that throws your theory out of the window13 Oct 2010
my girl is 8 months old, and has already been on 5 flights, all business class, 3 long haul and 2 short, and on every flight nobody has even noticed there was an infant onboard. The best bit in my opinion was when we boarded in DXB the guy sitting next to us took one look at my girl and complained to the FA about being sat next to a baby, they moved him to the back of business. From about 30 minutes after takeoff all you could hear was him cursing and complaining as there was a baby in the economy bassinet position right behind him…… priceless!!!13 Oct 2010
Inconsiderate thats all I can say !!! but I do admire parents who put their kids in the overhead bins. You say no one noticed but the poor guy sat next you obviously did so how can you claim no one noticed ???? deeerrr13 Oct 2010
We’ve had several threads on this recently,13 Oct 2010
SiteAdministrator….Yes there have been a lot of post on this subject but it does not stop the ludicrous comments about kids that those of us who travel with them have to put up with. My kids have clocked up over 350,000 miles from when they were both 4 weeks old with the vast majority in First. I will not tolerate bad behaviour from them but they are children, not adults, so they will be allowed some latitude. Moreover I pay both for them and myself from my own funds and increasingly there is no child discount, so they have as much right to be there as anyone else.
Craigwatson is absolutely right that adults cause far more grief on board aircraft, be it ill mannered status conscious boors or those who the hygienically challenged. I and my kids have to put up with them and in 25 years of flying these individuals have outnumbered challenging kids by a long chalk.
As I have stated before…”live with it folks, it is public transport”…if you don’t like it, get a private jet.” You will be doing yourself and the rest of us a big favour…….better still have some kids and learn about life.13 Oct 2010
All very good comments and they have been broached on another post as mentionned by the site administrator. Should it be reminded that business/first class are premium classes that people who chose and pay for them prefer them to be child-free. I don’ t think the airlines should encourage passengers to bring their children and/or pets on board premium classes. After all, pubs, porn shops and other establishments are prohibited to minors. I always find it a bit rude of people to impose their spawn on others, thinking it is allright since 1/-they are paying for it and if I pay, I am owed everything; 2/-as a species, we are condemned to procreate/reproduce and might as well put up with it since the creation of times. Some children might be very well behaved and others, not. It really all depends on the parents. Since both sides are correct, and hold similar rights and responsibilities, the only solution I can imagine is for one to fly a private jet, being a corporate jet, a for share jet or a light, cheaper jet aircraft as seen in the US industry recently.24 Oct 2010
This is an “old” discussion in this forum and there are some clear “camps” on this one. Didn’t think there was much to add until I watched Norwegian/Swedish co-produced talk show this past Friday.
A scientist who researched “noise” had a top 3 list of the most dreaded list of noises for humans. The clear number one was children crying, and the example given was the eight hour flight with a crying baby next to you.
Nevertheless, there are adults and children misbehaving on airplanes and other means of transportation. Whilst I personally have no children, I would never mind children in a business or First cabin. Furthermore, I would also have a higher tolerance with the children. What I look for are parents, and their willingness to “control” their children during the flight. I’ve had more issues with unruly adults, odour, drunks, and plain miserable passengers than crying babies.
Next time, don’t be pass any judgement until after the fact.24 Oct 2010
