Travellers in favour of child-free flights

Apologies for the long absence - I was preparing for the bar exam.

Survey indicates support for separate section on planes for babies and young children.
An overwhelming majority of air passengers would prefer that people who travel with young children are seated in a different section of the plane, according to a US-based consumer group.

The survey, carried out by airfarewatchdog.com, found that 85 per cent of the 10,000 travellers surveyed thought that segregating those travelling with children from other passengers was a good idea, due to their frustration at hyperactive youngsters and crying infants.

Even a large proportion of parents were in support of seating configurations that kept younger travellers separated from the rest of the cabin.

I would LOVE special parent with child(ren) seating. Put them in the back of the plane please. As a childfree frequent flyer, there's nothing worse than waiting behind parents with children while they fumble around trying to get everything together once the plane has reached the terminal. I'm not even going to mention how annoying a child's voice/screams/tantrums are mid-air. I hope they do this!!!
