Airline Bans Children From First Seven Rows

Airline Bans Children From First Seven Rows

(KTVI) – Tired of crying babies on flights? Beginning next week, children under 12 are banned from the first seven rows of economy class on Air Asia X flights to China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Austrailia and Nepal.

The child-free area, called the “quiet zone”, also offers softer lighting and is sectioned off from the rest of the plane by toilets and bulkheads.

The seats will cost you an extra $30.

1. I'd be pretty pissed

 

If I paid 30 bucks extra to be in row 7, and there was a screaming kid kicking my chair from row 8.

That being said, having kids of my own and having flown with them many times, I am quite tolerant of others in the same situation.

Reading comprehension.

3. It'll be interesting to see how this works.

I'd pay it in a heartbeat for a long trip, not sure about a shorter trip.

4. This is excellent

Nothing pisses me off more than having to listen to a screaming brat on a long flight.

5. I think it's a good idea.

On a long flight, I would pay $30 extra for peace and quiet.

6. Good grief.

Babies cry. Deal with it. A first world problem if ever there was one.

7. A crying infant, I can accept

A 3 year old throwing a tantrum, not so much.

13. Because 3 year olds

are known for their emotional maturity and self control, I guess?

9. Yes, babies do cry.

Little kids throw tantrums. For $30, I don't have to deal with it. I don't see anything wrong with this.

10. Air Asia is Asia's largest low cost airline

Air Asia X is their long distance international subsidiary.

11. Too bad they don't have a special section for the personal space-clueless.

Those fuckers aggravate me ten times more than crying kids do when I have to fly.
