So JAL will for flights booked directly with them indicate on the seat map where a child is sitting to allow those without kids to potentially avoid sitting next to a screaming baby or toddler.
Would be great if all airlines did this.So JAL will for flights booked directly with them indicate on the seat map where a child is sitting to allow those without kids to potentially avoid sitting next to a screaming baby or toddler.
Easy to avoid as a parent though, set the parent (P) between the child (C) and the stranger (S).The likelihood of abuse by a stranger is very, very small (compared to a person known to the family/child), but I can see a minority of situations where someone creepy could deliberately choose to sit near a child
It’s not always that simple. Our Miss is fine on take off but sometimes during decent, feeding her isn’t sufficient to stop her from crying in pain. Sometimes a dummy works, sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes you just have to ride it out, it’s only for a few minutes. Doesn’t make me a poor parent, it’s just life.The children are never the problem, it's always the parents who are the problem.
For example, not knowing to give children something to chew on during take off and landing to promote swallowing to help equalise their ears and prevent pain and therefore crying. Or not feeling it is their responsibity to manage the behaviour of their child and its impact on other PAX.
Sadly a seat map of poor parents would be difficult to implement.
