I've never had to take my kids travelling on planes when they were babies so I cannot imagine how or what they'd be as passengers.
Just as well...
But I've travelled on flight where children were fellow passengers.
In all honesty, of course, you would be affected by babies or children crying. For me, it's not so much that I get irritated. I feel for the parent trying to soothe the child.
So far, I've never witnessed any passenger complaining about noisy or bawling kids.
Anyway, in a recent suvey, many people have owned up to being annoyed by children on planes.
According to the survey -- airlines are being urged to segregate children or ban them from certain flights altogether to keep business class passengers happy - according to a recent survey.
The survey, posted on news.com.au, reported that 75 per cent of business class travellers said they were annoyed by the presence of children on planes, the The Daily Mail reports.
The survey, run in conjunction with the Business Travel and Meetings trade show, urges major airlines such as British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and Emirates, to consider child-free flights.
Of the 1000 participants, three quarters of business class passengers found children on planes "irritating".
Campaigners have also suggested airlines use "flight zones" - where children and adults are segregated.
