    Not a lot of details in the article, but I wonder what the father's response to the kid not wanting to wear the seatbelt was.

    It's hard to argue one way or the other without being in that situation though... I don't know how old the other kid was in first with the wife, but it seems like she did a better job of managing the toddler, but it was just too late by then.

    I think preparation goes a long way towards making sure you don't have this type of problems. I would never ever ever split cabins with my wife if we had 2 kids (we only have one) unless they were much, much older. And you better believe that everywhere we go we take absolutely everything that is necessary to keep a toddler quiet... all the toys, a tablet with his favorite cartoons, plenty of juice, etc.

    I wish restaurants and hotels would react as the pilot did when kids are out of control and greatly disturbing others.

    I know several hotels, mostly in Europe that require minimum age. None of this in the large chains I believe.

    I believe some of the casino hotels in Vegas don't let people under the age of 18 on the property if they're not staying there.

    No, if that were the case, nobody would allow kids on their property. They just don't want kids there. :)
