Feedback at 5:00: What Do You Think About An Airline Having A Child-Free Zone?

Posted: Updated:

Thursday's Feedback at 5:00:

Many of us have been there.

You're quietly seated for take-off, when an unhappy toddler or crying baby comes onto the plane with some stressed out parents, and they sit down right by you.

To stop the added flight stress, Singapore based Scoot Airlines is now offering a child-free zone, called the "Scoot In Silence" area.

For a $14 upgrade, passengers can be seated away from anyone under the age of 12.

What do you think of the airline's move?

It's tonight's Feedback at Five.
