A few months ago we reported on a survey that asked business class passengers how they felt about Adult Only flights or Child Free zones on long haul flights. 75% of those questioned said that they found kids on planes annoying, which is no great revelation - who likes the sound of crying babies or kids fighting over broken toys?
Malaysian Airlines have taken the debate to a new level, by actioning a ban on babies from the first class zone on their new Airbus A380 and Boeing 747-400 fleet.
