I bloody would.

No! Never had a problem personally.

Yes!!! Although it's not usually the children that are the problem, it's the parents who fail to well, parent.

No, never had an issue with kids on flights, ever

HookedOnHooking Thu 03-Sep-15 21:04:24

3 solid hours of top volume screaming should not be inflicted on anyone. Ever.

Yes. I know the poor little begger couldn't help it. Or it's parent could do nothing to stop it but fuck me I'd pay quite a lot to not have to do that again ever.

Yes, yes and yes again.

No but I would pay for a child free cple of hours in a supermarket

Also I'd pay extra and buy stuff in child free supermarkets and restaurants if I could.

Yes I would, but only if I get them back in one piece at the other end of the flight. Kind of like the ikea play room.

Rowdy alcohol fueled groups or too fat to fit in their seat so they spill over in to yours adults have disturbed me more than young kids.

I've had child free holidays with flights full of squealing kids. I relax in the bliss of knowing they're not mine

AuntyMag10 Thu 03-Sep-15 21:08:33

Yes! Children under 6 especially.

TimeToMuskUp Thu 03-Sep-15 21:08:59

No. But that's because I have two of my own, so other people's are never much of an issue. Can see why others might, though; a chap on our flight this summer was huffing and puffing the whole time because the child in front of him (not mine) was standing on it's seat dancing about while her parents got spangled. She wasn't half as noisy as he was with his cussing and moaning.

I think under 10.

Over 10 can be reasonably expected to not kick seats, scream or use outside voices.

I've only taken short flights in recent years so I'd say one to childfree flights

Though to a rowdy drunk free flight I most certainly would too, it's a very threatening feeling and I'd take a planeful of screaming babies over that again any day

Moln Thu 03-Sep-15 21:10:40

No not one

TravellingToad Thu 03-Sep-15 21:10:47

no never had a problem with kids on a flight

BadLad Thu 03-Sep-15 21:10:48

Absolutely I would.

PowderMum Thu 03-Sep-15 21:13:32

Oh yes please

LieselVonTwat Thu 03-Sep-15 21:17:11

I'd pay extra for stag and hen free flights. And for a screening process to weed out the sort of assclown who hasn't grasped the 'public' in public transport and thinks they have a right not to be around children.

goblinhat Thu 03-Sep-15 21:17:33

I've never had a problem with kids on flights either- and I have flown over 200 times.

EatDessertFirst Thu 03-Sep-15 21:17:40

Never had an issue with kids on a flight. My own really enjoy flying and are impeccably behaved. The drunks on flights pose more of a risk and are way more irritating IMO. And the pearl clutchers I've witnessed that huff and puff about kids <shock horror> talking. Some people need to get over themselves.

Queeltie Thu 03-Sep-15 21:25:06

Only if I was flying somewhere where a flight was likely to be full of kids, such as Florida.
And where is everyone flying to? I have never been on a flight with drunken rowdy adults.
