Many of us have been near a screaming kid on a flight. What did we did at such times? Sleep, watch a movie, or look out of the window… Now, Japan Airlines has introduced a tool to help passengers avoid babies on their flights. Seats booked for babies are marked with a baby icon on the seat selection map on JAL’s website, so that passengers can avoid nearby seats.
Honestly, I have a feeling this won’t change anything. There are other types of people you’d want to avoid on planes - naughty kids above 2, drunk people, idiots, racists and so on… But at least it’s an attempt at helping passengers. What’s your opinion on this?
