Airline Offers “Child-Free” Zones
One of the hazards of flying is being on a flight with kids. Businesses have been talking about doing this for awhile now, but one airline is now offering a “child-free” zone.
According to Opposing Views, Scoot Airlines, a budget-friendly offshoot of Singapore Airlines, is offering a section of 41 seats that ban children under the age of 12. For an extra $18, adult travelers can sit in this section without the fear of a kid kicking their seat, screaming the whole flight, or dropping stuff in their mouths as they snooze. Even better, these seats are wider and come with more leg-room than the average economy seats.
Other airlines serving Asia are offering no kid zones as well. Air Asia X and Mayalasia Airlines have both instituted areas on their planes that are off limits to kids under certain ages.
