Here here, Chili! Agree totally. Other people should not have to suffer because some parents don't know how (or are unwilling to try) to control their offspring.1poorkid is now 14. We never had problems with her at least in part because we laid down the rules, and made sure she understood. It's a bit of work laying the foundation, but it's not rocket science, people!I also would pay more for childless flights (over age 10, perhaps).And sometimes I wonder what people are thinking bringing infants on flights. If the kid has a plugged ear he/she can't tell you, but you'll find out as the eardrum explodes during the flight (amid screams and wails from the baby). I've heard babies screaming during takeoff/ascent and sometimes wondered whether the kid was receiving permanent damage. Having made the mistake of boarding a flight once with plugged ears I can attest to the extreme pain. The only thing that saved me was a sharp stewardess who gave me hot tea...it worked...the hot liquid opened up the eustachian tubes enough to save my ears. Literally. So I actually feel some sympathy for the wailing infants (who are clearly in pain). Leave the babies with grandma, or do a road trip, or something...but don't take them on a plane!1poorguy
