...are annoying as fuck! I would pay extra to not sit near one. A 16 hour hell ensues 😢

The wails of this kid manages to seep through the noise cancellation in my earphones (a bit exaggerated, but can’t put the earphones on for that long).

    The parents probably love it too. 🙄 Flying with children sucks for everyone. Upgrade your fare or deal with it like an adult.

      Nop you can get a kid in business class. Chances are rare but they show up over there.

      I once encountered a new born baby and mom in business class. She booked that to make sure she can be comfortable taking her new born back home.

      I fly with my kids in business quite a bit. I get some strange looks at times. They're super quiet though. At the end, everybody loves them. 😄

      If they are well behaved and liked, I don't think they are the kind OP is complaining about. That is great you have well behaved children. It must save from lots of head aches.

      I get OP's pain. It's indeed super annoying. Just saying business may not save you from hell.

      Just shout back as loudly as the kid. Everyone has the right to express themselves.

    The trick is to not select a seat near bassinet seats.

    I'm very calm, and love kids, so some random newborn baby cries don't bother me much. But this last transatlantic flight was with a toddler girl, who traveled with her grandparents. She had some sort of panic attack, and literally yelled non stop. Her grandparents didn't speak her language (they live somewhere in Europe, while she's US born), so whatever they tried to tell her to calm down, had zero effect. She looked very scared and just yelled. At some point I tried to play with her to distract, it helped for about 30 minutes, then she remembered something and started to scream again, full volume, till our plane landed. After this case I don't even notice kids in flights, she raised the bar way too high.

    Some kids are on the autism spectrum. It will be 10x harder to keep such kid calm if at all possible. Sometimes we have to take the things as is.

    There are few bad parents though. I have not seen that group in my 40+ roundtrips yet surprisingly. Perhaps it is because I have kids but I was never bothered by the kids in the plane even before having kids.

    Air plane ride can be scary for many adults as well. You can tell people get very nervous when the pilot mentions about gust. I can understand kids being scared and screaming so that doesn’t bother me. Adults who laugh loudly are annoying.

    Kids are annoying as fuck, regardless of location. In general, you have better chances at avoiding them at more expensive places - most young families try to optimize their expenses. So even if you are scrudge who would not pay for business, avoid the cheapest flights/airlines.
