Malaysian Airlines is taking the first step towards what may become a trend – ‘Child Free’ cabins for adults who don’t want their flight being disturbed by noisy kids. They have just announced that the upper deck of the A380 aircraft will be child free. Here is a link to a report on USA Today.
As a business traveler who thinks he flies too much anyways, I appreciate the idea of a child free zone. I too want to be rested on a long flights before a business meeting. On the other hand, as a parent, I see this as restrict my ability to book certain flights and limiting seat availability for me sand my family. Getting upper class award seat availability when there are four of you flying is tough anyways, now it will be even more limited when some of those award seats are in the ‘child free’ zone. At least on an A380, it still leaves a whole deck open for traveling kids.
What do you think? Is ‘child free’ cabins a good idea? Do you think this will catch on as a trend? Leave a comment…
