Childfree Travel

Just back from a wonderful, relaxing Caribbean cruise, which was especially great since there were only a few children on the large ship. We were frustrated, however, when we arrived for our six hour flight to Seattle to find that twin infants were seated just a couple of rows ahead of us. The family of four was given an entire row so they could spread out, despite paying for only two seats. Needless to say, these children cried throughout the flight, and mom and dad spent lots of time walking them around trying to console the screamers. My question is, should parents be able to bring small screaming children on a flight for free, when those of us who are full-paying passengers cannot relax and have a positive flying experience?

    That’s infuriating–I would absolutely call the airline and seek some sort of compensation. Again, subsidizing the CHOICES of others to procreate is not something that I am on board with–pun intended! 😉
