Thought air travel was difficult enough already?
Then clearly, you weren’t on the same wavelength as the powers that be at Malaysia Airlines, which will ban children from the top floor of its newest aircraft.
This summer, they’ll add new, two-story jets to their fleet, with economy and business class cabins on the top floor and first class down below. Children under 12 won’t be welcome on the top story … and babies won’t be welcome in first class.
This isn’t revolutionary for Malaysia Airlines in particular, which announced last year that it would ban children from first class on certain flights.
We can’t help but wonder: Will the new policy benefit Malaysia Airlines by attracting the childless and those who choose to leave children at home, or hurt the airline by disqualifying them as a mode of family travel?
And more importantly—will the child-free policy catch on?
