Flying on Facebook
I have yet to fly on a plane with my son. He is now 17 months old and I am not sure when I am going to take to the sky.
The issue is not the enormous amount of stuff that I would have to bring; both on the plane and via checked baggage (with hefty fees). It is my fear that my son will hate the plane and thus all the other passengers on the plane will hate me.
It is is a founded “fear”, since there are several Facebook pages on this subject and perhaps may change the term to “flying the un-friendly skies”?
One is called “I Hate Sitting Close to Little Kids on Planes“. There is similar page called, “I Hate Kids on Planes. There are even more pages on this subject with various words; Kids, Flying, Plane and Hate in the title. The most popular one with over 1000 likes is “Airlines Should have Kid Free Flights“. It was even featured in this video segment on MSNBC yesterday.
Reading the various posts and pages, it is a very heated debate on both sides of the aisle (pun intended), but some ideas presented include a special seating section for families traveling with kids and kids-free flights.
What do you think?
