    Following last week's shocking news that cabin crew demanded a father remove his three year old son from an Alaska Airlines plane after the toddler was deemed too disruptive to fly, a survey conducted by flight comparison site Skyscanner of more than 1,000 parents has revealed that, far from being an isolated incident, 12% of parents said they have found it difficult to get any sympathy from cabin crew in response to their children’s needs.

    The toddler at the center of the incident first became upset when he was forced to switch off the reading device his father had given him to keep him busy.

    Many parents in the survey sympathise with this situation, with over a third having endured their child having a "meltdown" on an aircraft and 13% of respondents stating their children too have become upset after abruptly being told to switch off electronic devices by the cabin crew with no explanation or understanding of why.

    Were those children perhaps accompanied by parents that could explain the reason? (or could have ensured compliance in the first place?)
