ABCNews.com Column: Kids vs. Business Travelers

July 30, 2008 | Posted in: ABC Column,Travel Tips

In today’s column, I write about war.

Well, a kind of war: that between traveling families and the brief-case brigade.

Both sides seem to sneer at one another (and worse! read the column!) but I think I have some ideas to ease the hostilities.

What do you think about banishing kids to the back of the plane?

See the column here. And tell me what you think.

    Good column, but I wonder how you chose the paradigm Biz Traveller versus Kids?

    What about non-parent coach traveller versus kids? We have it bad enough in coach (See: removal of seatback magazines to save weight for four new showers). Families travelling with kids should have to fly up front, in first & biz class! More space for little Johnny to run around and perhaps scream less as a result.

    Don’t newborns cry because they feel too stuffy and crowded? They should have to fly up front, Rick.

    They already have this. It’s called upgrading frequent travelers to first class… and it’s why I stick to Continental and Northwest.

    Sorry, but if I’m on a transcon back from SFO after a ridiculously long week, the last thing I want to deal with is some undersupervised kid in coach.

    It’s not their (the kids) fault; I would have had a hard time sitting still for 5-6 hours in a cramped plane when I was a kid, too. But I still don’t want to deal with it twice a week when I fly.
