I'd prefer they used the children as chaff but it's a step in the right direction.

Cool, just like at theatres or churches where they have a special kids room they can all yell and play in

Cool.

Maybe next there will be child free shopping. I'd like to see that after today.

Meh I've flown a ton of times and I can't recall any children ruining my flight. I'm more bothered by people in front of me who lean their seat back.

Lol, they really do need flights for people with kids and without kids separately already, kids are annoying, and adults are stupid and seem to think babies shouldn't cry, or people shouldn't be able to fly with kids, when hello how are they supposed to get where they are going? I don't get why they don' have them already, obviously wouldn't want something like this though lol.

Were you aware that it was a joke?

I fly a fair bit, I almost never have seen kids "running around" on an airplane, even before 9/11. Gassy and smelly passengers and general noise are a much bigger problem.

Well I didn't look much past the thread title, so I was hopeful that it was real.

It was only a joke? That's sad.

Seriously, though, I never encountered noisy kids running amok on flights, so I never thought it was a problem, and I don't know why other people would complain. I must have been lucky any time I flew anywhere.

I've only flown twice and I wasn't bothered by any kids or babies. I was more annoyed with the immature teenagers who thought it was funny to constantly get yelled at by the pilot and the older Red Hat Society women who decided to sing together during the entire flight.

It isn't normal for them to literally run around the plane, but it happens. Eventually they tend to get crammed back in a seat.

The noise is the worst part. Makes the engines sound soothing by comparison. After ~20 hours flying I would have no objection whatsoever to just hurling them out a door. The cold and decompression would be a welcome change.

This old man I once sat next to fell asleep when they were handing out drinks, so he didn't get one. When he woke up he got pissy with an attendant about it. Then he demanded a diet pepsi, but the attendant was like "I can't right now, we're landing" which got him more upset. I think he managed to get it with a bit more arguing, but he remained pissed and he just kept talking to himself in business jargon like "If they valued my business..." and "they made no attempt to satisfy me!" while I was just sitting there quietly. Kind of awkward, but easily made up for by amusement value.

I love those people. I like to cheerfully agree with them in vague terms, sometimes affirming what they've said but getting parts wrong on purpose. Annoys the **** out of them.

I'm usually asleep by the time the plane takes off and waken up by the thump of it hitting the ground. And just in case, I always travel with ear plugs and a blindfold.

All he wanted was a Pepsi and she wouldn't give it to him.

No, like I said I'm pretty sure he got his pepsi. He was mainly pissed that she didn't wake him up to take his drink order.

I seriously think it should be illegal for people to drag their whining kids into R rated movies that I'm trying to enjoy.

I never understood just what makes some of these people think it's okay to drag their six or seven or however the hell many kids they have into a theater to see something like - say - The Hills Have Eyes 2. I remember seeing that one with my brother, and he turns to me and says "You have GOT to be ****ing kidding me."

And then the parents of the year acted all indignant and did that mad, stompy "I want my money back" walkout people do in the middle of the movie. You know the type - all indignant, want to draw attention to the fact they were too stupid to realize they were watching a horrible movie about cannibalism and rape with their young kids.

My proudest moment was "accidentally" tripping the father. I don't think the mild injuries he sustained damaged his testicles, sadly, and he'll likely breed again.

At worst, you most likely damaged his brain, thus making him more prone to moronic actions in the future.

My mother let me see absolutely awful movies as a kid, but there was never a big deal over it because she knew they were. We'd rent things from the video store (you know... back when there was a point to that) and my mother would be too scared to watch them with my brother and I.
