Children are selfish yet you expect babies not to cry or a toddler not get fed up on a 14 hour flight? :rolleyes:

I don't. I expect the parents to realise that their offspring are likely to cry or get fed up on a 14 hour flight, and thus will disrupt other passengers. Therefore I expect the parents to realise that one of the sacrifices that they have to make as a consequence of having young children is not being able to travel halfway round the world until their children are old enough to sit still and keep reasonably quiet.

That, or back to the original suggestion of segregated areas on flights, which would appear to be a solution that would resolve most of the issues. ;)

No, I fully expect it. That is why I'm in favour of child free zones on flights. Seems like a sensible decision all round. The parents can not worry about their children annoying others and those who want a bit of piece and quiet can book seats in the child free zone.

All fair enough. Not that it'll stop letters to the papers from parents, accusing anyone who wants such a thing of being heartless barren monsters.

No but lets have it right. I don't want to sit next to pensioners or people slurping tea or coffee or have smelly feet. So zones for all is only fair.

it seems like its taboo to admit you don't like children.

It's worse if you really, really like children.

At first, the infant,
Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms.
And then the whining school-boy, with his satchel
And shining morning face, creeping like snail
Unwillingly to school. And then the lover,
Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad
Made to his mistress' eyebrow. Then a soldier,
Full of strange oaths and bearded like the pard,
Jealous in honour, sudden and quick in quarrel,
Seeking the bubble reputation
Even in the cannon's mouth. And then the justice,
In fair round belly with good capon lined,
With eyes severe and beard of formal cut,
Full of wise saws and modern instances;
And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts
Into the lean and slipper'd pantaloon,
With spectacles on nose and pouch on side,
His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide
For his shrunk shank; and his big manly voice,
Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,
That ends this strange eventful history,
Is second childishness and mere oblivion,
Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.


guess which end of the spectrum hindle is.

True but I think most people who have children know they have to give up a few luxuries.

I must admit that on the few long haul flights I've been on - via Emirates to/from Australia - kids haven't bothered me that much. There have been a few excited ones running along the passageways, to and from the loos, etc, but they seem to settle down after a while (probably knackered!). The extensive entertainment tends to help subdue them after a while, and helps me ignore any disruption.

Also, on a journey lasting 20 hours or so most normal people - including kids - tend to succumb to exhaustion. Not me, though. I get a short nap of 90 minutes, if I'm lucky, so most of my journey is enjoyed in peace (peaceful watching of films, listening to rock music, watching the footage of the plane's external cameras, reading Rugby League World/Rugby League Week).

Small babies crying just brings the paternal side of me, regardless of how loud or persistent it goes on.

I have no problem sharing a flight with kids, as long as their seats are on the wing.

Kids aren't the problem, its the parents who can't/won't control them.

indeed - parents who think their precious little darlings can do no wrong and should be allowed to run around uncontrollably are the issue here.
Same goes for most public places though not just planes.

There's very few parents with this attitude though. Its like most adults are reasonable on a flight or other enclosed scenario but there's always exceptions. Drunk people on planes can be a nightmare.

i disagree about there being very few.
Its even worse when parents feel that sorting their kids out is screeching at them making even more of a scene than their kids.

Its not easy mate, as you will probably know one day. ;) When you are losing your rag the last thing you need is someone tut-tutting at you and pointing out your parental shortcomings. Perhaps some of the stress comes from knowing your kids are annoying others?

And it is only a minority that regard their kids as little angels who can do no wrong, most realise they can be a pain.
