No... deal with it.
Children and families have the right to take any flight they choose.

"No more screaming babies would be nice!"

That's why they invented headphones.

Listening to a little kid whine for 3+ hours is extremely obnoxious to deal with but... At first it sounds like a good idea, but it would also give certain parents another excuse not to discipline their kids. I'm sure the child-free flights would be more expensive, and it would just make things worse for the people would couldn't afford it.

Ditto. Just turn up the sound on your headphones or something.

Actually, I'd prefer idiot-free flights.

I think "child friendly" flights would be a better idea. Flights that are exclusively for parents and young children. Child free flights sounds like bad P.R.

I think that would be a great idea. Kids aren't just annoying because of the sound; I always end up sitting in front of a little kid who kicks my seat while I'm trying to sleep.

Sure, families have the right to travel on whatever flight they want, but other passengers deserve the right to peace (for some extra money). As long as every destination has a flight allowing children, I don't see a problem with it.

I think it's a great idea. I would pay, no problem

It would be no different than offering something for 'business travelers only' or such. There really aren't that many babies on flights, they can probably have a couple flights a day designated as 'no baby' flights...

Yes.

Or they should have a separate section for places with kids.

YES YES YES..... or atleast a seperate section for families with small children.

Maybe not but it would still be worth it. You'd agree if you were on a 14 hour flight with TRIPLETS who had cholic!

Put earplugs in. Families have a the right to fly whenever they choose, just like you. I'd rather listen to a crying baby than have to listen to a grown adult bitching about the crying baby for the entire flight.

"No Baby Flights" is as discriminatory as "Whites Only Flights"

16 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 11/5/05 - 5:03:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
Parents should just control their kids. I've been flying since I was 5 months old, my parents have never had a problem with me crying on a flight.

I'm sick of the parents who just let their kids cry and kick seats through the whole flight.

Bah.

Ya that annoys me too, but I just deal with it. Of course families have as much of a right to fly.

Some babies have colic...I did. You can't control a baby. You can try to quiet them down with bottles, pacifiers, and shiny objects, but it's not just a matter of choice or a simple action.

Put a gasmask on. Smokers have the right to fly whenever they choose, just like you. I'd rather watch a smoker than have to listen to a non-smoker bitching about smoking for the entire flight. "No smoking flights" is as discriminatory as "no baby flights".

I love the idea of flights with peace and quiet, personally. Passengers wouldn't be allowed to take a barking dog or a screeching parrot on board, or to listen to a hi-fi full volume: why on earth should they be allowed to take screaming brats on board to disturb the other customers?

^Smokers may have the right to fly whenever the want, but they don't have the right to smoke wherever they want. It's more of a safety issue than anything else.
As for kids, I've been on four hour flights with screaming kids. Doesn't bother me.

Just like smokers, they may have a 'right' to *be* there, but do NOT have any right to interfere with other people's use of the service - and it certainly does bug the ... out of me. Is it really too much to ask that parents try to live up to the same standards as most pet owners?

16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Saturday 12/17/05 - 5:20:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
I wouldn't care, I never go on flights anyway.

Smoke all you want to Jas88, it's fine by me. I used to smoke on flights until I quit the habbit and I'm still not bothered by people smoking around me. As for dogs and parrots, well you can hardly put them in the same category of rites as a human child.

The same category of irritation, however, I can and do. I do find screaming brats far more irritating and objectionable than smoking (although I don't smoke) - if airlines were to ban only one, I'd far prefer them to enforce peace and quiet.

I hope you don't have any kids Jas.

I don't. If I did, I'd like to think I'd be more considerate than to inflict their bad behaviour on strangers without any attempt to control them.

Children scream and cry. That is what they do. If you can't deal with that you shouldn't have kids.
