Inneresting, and we imagine VERY controversial!
Malaysia Airlines has reportedly decided to ban infants from the first class section of its Boeing 747-400 jet, as well as the new A380 super-jumbo jet, after complaints from passengers who had trouble sleeping on flights due to the cries of children!
According to CEO and Managing Director Tengku Amil:
"Also hv many complaints from 1st class pax dat dey spend money on 1st class & can't sleep due to crying infants."
Travelers with babies on routes from Kuala Lumpur to Amsterdam, London and Sydney will now have to buy tickets in business or economy class, which will be only areas available equipped with bassinets!
We understand that people spend a lot of money to fly in luxury…but shouldn't parents who can afford it also have that same luxury with their children?
Crying babies can certainly be frustrating, but hey! Sometimes it's just a part of traveling!
Get some headphones and take a
xanax chill pill!
What do U think?? Should babies be banned from first class?
