    First there was Nanny in the Clouds -- a website that connects parents with nannies who are traveling on the same flight.

    But what if flights already came with nannies on board?

    Now, one airline is offering that service.

    The UAE-based Etihad Airways announced it has launched a new flying nanny service on board its long haul flights to provide a "helping hand" to families and unaccompanied minors.

    The specially- training flight attendants, who attended special training at the U.K.’s prestigious nanny school Norland College, will be wearing identifiable bright orange aprons and will provide their pint-seized passengers with a stream of food, drinks and mile-high distractions, such as sock puppet making and magic tricks. In conjunction with the announcement, the airline said it is also releasing a string of new animal characters--Zoe the bee, Jamool the camel, Kundai the lion, and Boo the panda – to help keep kids entertained.
