No place for kids in premium cabins

2 Feb 2011 by BusinessTraveller

A recent survey has revealed that three quarters of business class passengers can’t stand flying with children.

The survey, carried out by the Business Travel and Meetings Show, asked 1,000 business travellers what annoyed them about business class travel, with 74 per cent saying children.

Other pet hates included fellow travellers who receive free upgrades when others have paid the full price (18 per cent), lack of privacy from economy travellers (15 per cent) and paying first class rates only to get an economy standard of service (12 per cent).

The issue of kids travelling in business class has been the subject of debate on our forum for some time - click here to join in the discussion.

The findings of the survey were revealed ahead of the Business Travel and Meetings Show which takes place next week at Earls Court Exhibition Centre.

Visitors to the show are invited to join Business Traveller at stand 27, where we will be sampling winning wines from our annual Cellars in the Sky Awards.

If you buy, manage or book business travel or meetings for your company, the Business Travel and Meetings Show is the event for you. For more information and to register for your free pass, visit
