A budget airline has announced a child-free zone on their flights to ensure the comfort of their passengers. Children under 12 are not allowed in the 'Scoot in silence' cabin behind business class on Singapore Airlines' budget carrier Scoot. They have become the second Asian airline to introduce a child-free zone.
CEO Scott Campbell said in a statement, "No offence to our young guests, or those travelling with them, you still have the rest of the aircraft to choose from."
The airline is in talks to join forces with Tigerair Australia, which could lead to the first Australian airline implementing child-free zones.
Asian budget carrier AirAsia X's has a 'quiet zone' on it's flights where children under 12 are banned. Malaysian Airlines has banned infants from traveling in first class due to complaints from passengers who had trouble sleeping due to crying babies.
Let me just be clear when I say, THIS MAKES ME AS MAD AS HELL.
If a business class passenger snores during a flight in first class, I might have trouble sleeping too. Should we ban snorers as well? What about overly talkative passengers or ones who smell, or get drunk?
