    We just returned yesterday from holiday and had to endure a nightmare(to us) flight home with kids screaming, crying, making a hell of a racket, much to a lot of people's annoyance, I was thinking that I would pay a premium to be able to book an adult only flight, anyone else feels the same, But I doubt it will ever happen.

    Rarely fly, it's all of 13 years since I flew on a business trip to Scotland.. and prior to that Glasgow to Aberdeen to go offshore.. no kids on these flights .. :LOL:

    Never flown on a package holiday .. and don't intent to either.. if I had to fly it would need to be in business class... so that won't be any time soon..

    I'm afraid it is the parents to blame.. it's a 'modern' phenomena.. you get the same ill tempered kids running around supermarkets, camp sites, play grounds, in school, with mums and dads not giving a stuff what they do..

    I'm an old git who raised six .. and never would have allowed such behavior.. but then again, I didn't stuff em full of additives and fast food..

    rant almost over.. :D

    So you don't have kids, and you have never been a kid yourself.?

    Not excusing poor behaviour but you can't live in a glass jar

    How about people reclining chairs into you, coughing, farting, etc etc

    Put your hand in your pocket and go first class, or better charter a plane, simples

    Unfortunately you pay cheap, you get cheap with the great unwashed

    A g&t helps, as does headphones :LOL:

    Travelling on the occasional bus and train, sitting in eye clinic recently it always seems the same thing. Parents don't take anything to occupy their child. I can remember carrying crayons, scribble paper, few little cars, small books. All had to go in a shoulder bag as I didn't drive when mine were tiny. Saw a mum on a bus hand her child her mobile phone to play with. The child was barely more than a year old.

    Do straight jackets come in kid size?
    Might be a solution.

    Or sterilisation.

    ;)

    I would. Badly behaved bored kids , On airplanes are as bad as yappy spoilt dogs In motorhomes.
    We always managed to keep our three occupied , taking plenty things for them to do . Albeit the longest they flew was 4 hours , but they have always behaved from an early age. The first time Jacob flew was 8 months . I was still Breast feeding him so that was easy.
    As for the twins , we took them when they were 16 month old and Jacob was 3. We had payed extra for more leg room and to All sit together, at the bulk head.
    Once on the plane we were told we couldn't because of Exits seats and spare oxygen masks. Ralph ended up four rows back with Jacob whilst I had the twins and a spare seat. They were very good ( twins) I was annoyed with the airline. Though I could obviously see their point. But it took ages to get the cash back , that we'd paid extra. I couldn't understand why we'd been allowed to book extra legroom , seats etc.
    The man who sat next to me, getting Our free extra leg room , as he swapped with Ralph, refused to let me have the elbow rest and spent the flight glaring at me whilst I was occupying the twins. Whilst his huge Fat bulk bled into my space anyway. I should have just left them to carry on and climb all over him like ive seen lots of parents do !
    They never cried , paddied etc. I sat next to him having the spare window seat to sit them on and a blanket on the floor when they were asleep. We decided we'd wait a coupl of years before we went again as it was a stressful flight. But only because I didn't want our children to spoil the flight. Several passengers complimented me , when we landed.
    We've never let our kids kick seats , or reach through gaps in front etc.
    Don't think you gt child free in club class either.
    Sometimes the Tristans of the world can be even more obnoxious than the Kyles. As are the parents.

    It's one of very many reasons we no longer fly. That Icelandic volcano changed our holiday plans back in 2010 and led us to buying our first van. With the exception of a wedding we had to attend in Italy that is it for us. Gave our luggage away to the kids.

    I love kids and to see them enjoying themselves if its out on site or any other open space ,but i have to say that as an acute tinnitus sufferer i would find it unbearable in an enclosed space.but its like one of the posters has said that it has to be down to the parents;)

    Although kids get the bad name on flights with crying etc in fact it's often the adults that are more objectionable! Last week flying back to the UK I had a guy sitting behind me that constantly kicked my seat, spoke loudly and in general was worse than any kid. When the trolley came around he was very demanding with no please or thanks initially. However the cabin crew had him sussed and when handing him his multiple drinks just said "please and thanks"! He was like a small boy then being reprimanded and realised if he upset them they probably wouldn't sell him anymore booze.

    I have also had the person sitting in the seat in front reclining back their seat so far I couldn't move.

    People who only spend their time with miserable old people grow miserable and old much sooner than people who don't.

    I have 50 hours of flying booked for this year so far, kids have never been a problem to me on planes and generally I love having kids around but I must say I sometimes prefer adult only hotels.:)
