    The sound of a crying or screaming child on a long flight is a nightmare many have had to endure. But, one airline is trying to end that.
    AirAsia X, which primarily serves China, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea and Australia, launched a program this week to keep kids away from your peaceful flight.
    Children under age 12 are no longer allowed in the first seven rows on certain AirAsia X flights. The "Quiet Zones" on AirAsia X also have softer lighting, divider curtains and separate toilets.
    The peace and quiet comes at a price—you will pay between about 11 and 36 dollars for the privilege.
    A competing carrier, Malaysia Airlines, offers similar child-free zones in first class and the upper deck on Airbus A-380 flights.

    :confused: Although, on my JFK-LHR flight after Christmas, it was the two grown men behind me that would not be quiet that were more disturbing than the child across the aisle...

    Yes yes i will pay the extra money to get away from the kids.
    re booze. Last Virgin flight I was on Perth to Darwin, at Darwin 4 cops came on and hauled off the bloke in front of me. Drugs or booze? he was behaving strangely, but not noisy.
