More Airlines Offering Child-Free Zones

Scoot Airlines, a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines, announced that it will let passengers pay about $14 to sit in a "child-free" zone. Children under the age of 12 are banned from sitting in this "Scoot in Silence" area, which will span rows 21 to 25 on its flights. This area also offers a few inches of more legroom. Scoot offers flights to Singapore, Sydney, the Gold Coast, Seoul and Nanjing. The airline joins Air Asia X, which also offers child-free zones. Air Asia X launched its "quiet zone" in February. Children under 12 aren't allowed to sit in this zone, which is composed of rows 7 - 14 in the premium cabin on some of its flights to Australia, China, Taiwan, Japan, Nepal and Korea.

  1. This quiet zone is way over due, having done the haul from Lax to Mel many a time with some bodys crying child, in ear shot, is nothing like doing it with a "screaming child" in ear shot, while the parents still manage to get a wine or a beer into them. The parents more often than not handle this screaming child by starring straight ahead and giving out the attitude, it's a kid, what do you expect ???
