Exactly what I was thinking.  I've been on too many flights with screaming toddlers and infants.  I know it's tougher on the parents because they're doing everything they can to keep the child/infant quiet, but it makes for a miserable flight for everyone.

well it's not any less miserable for the parents either. At least those of us who understand that a screaming child isn't exactly welcoming to the rest of the plane; in fact its worse because all we want to do is pull the exit lever and leave.

We know....you all hate us. Well they don't exactly post most appropriate times for parents with young one's to travel and believe me I've tried it all. Early morning when they're tired, late at night when they're tired, middle of the day. Still got schitty looks and I don't miss those days.

So much of this. I can deal with a crying baby. Its a Posted Imageing baby and doesn't know any better. My problem is with the 5-10 year olds, like Joe mentioned, that act like little Posted Images....and their parents who are too Posted Imageing lazy to discipline them.

Worst flight I ever had was when I had the last row aisle seat next to the bathrooms.
Red-eye from LA to Orlando.
Pigs wouldn't shut the hell up about Disney World.

There's a probability of that.  That's why we're keeping it short this vacation.  Max flight time of < 3 hours.

He's mostly a happy kid long as you keep him fed so I think he'll be ok, especially keeping it short.  I think I can find enough stuff to keep him occupied.  Any way you cut it, have to get him accustomed to traveling since that's the one vice we have.

Smart. I've found the age of the child is about the time in minutes you can keep their attention.

Exactly. A baby doesn't know any better.  It's annoying but it doesn't bother me much if the parents are trying to keep them happy.

The older kid though. Grrr.  Last vacation we took to Punta Cana, we went all out.  Flew first class, upgraded room, you name it.  On the way back, I had this 7 year old in the seat behind us that would not STFU for the entire flight.  Wouldn't listen to the FA and was generally obnoxious.  By the time you're 7, you need to know when it times to talk and when it's time to sit down and STFU...

The ipad helps.  He'll watch even with the sound off for quite some time....
