Japan Tackles Crying Flying Children.

In a move that’s bound to upset and provoke the more… sensitive members of the community a Japanese airline has introduced a new tool that lets you dodge infants when you book your seat.

Japan Airlines (JAL) website states:

“Passengers traveling with children between 8 days and 2 years old who select their seats on the JAL website will have a child icon displayed on their seats on the seat selection screen.”

At least one other Japanese airline does the same with a spokeswoman for All Nippon Airways (ANA) confirming its seat maps have shown where children are sittingfor a while.

Ah, Japan. Always at the forefront of innovation.

To varying degrees of success.

As someone that flies semi-regularly, and has had some rather interesting experiences with infants while flying, I definitely appreciate the heads up and the opportunity to lessen the discomfort of other people’s lifestyle choices.

Now to start working on a seat map

 

that identifies people who book window seats and want to use the bathroom every 15 minutes.
