you will of course think what you will, given your own circumstances.

however, from seeing the little bastards of others, combined with a global perspective and using that rarest of things these days, FORESIGHT, my decision not to have any of my own is conscious and deliberate.

Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!

well that is just as well.... as it would be tough to make a return.
but your sense of pride does little to impose upon me a need for tolerance.

so stay off my plane!

Ahh just for that, I'll book a seat near you and pump my kid full of Moutain Dew and Frosted Flakes.

I was thinking of banning people from the UK, but it seems kinda biased.

Tolerance is good.

Wouldn't banning kids stop a lot of families from flying places? And isn't a large portion of travelers families? So wouldn't that mean airlines, which are struggling as it is, would lose more money because of the loss of customers due to banning children. And in order to keep their airline running, they'd probably have to cut some services. So, flying would end up being a worse experience. In flight meals cut, or much more expensive. No more in flight movies or music. No pillows or blankets. Flights would be A LOT more expensive. Crappier service, etc...

I see you're getting the picture. I never travel without my Ipod or laptop so I am the least likely person to use any of the service anyway. And really $5 for a mini bottle of scotch?!? WTF? I take planes cause the last time I went to Orlando it took me 26hrs by bus. If It's 7hrs and under I can drive and keep my peace.

Last year when they made the pay for bags plan, I boarder and found out that EVERY overhead compartment was taken. Seems the guy in front of me decided that he and his family was going to avoid paying the fee. Now I don't mind the fact that people can get ghetto( or thifty if you like) but then the stewardess tells me that I have to check and PAY FOR my carryon to be put in as cargo. So I politely asked whos bags were filling the compartment and noone claimed them around me. So she begins to panic and think that there's a bomb on the plane. But before she can call it in, the fuck in front of me told her that they were his and he was trying to beat the cargo charge. This beautiful woman delayed the plane and made him check 4 of his bags.

People like that are 100 times worse than children. Seems that as adults we forget our manners.

New airline policy:

No carry on babies, they must be checked like pets.....

LOL I'll show my age back. I do remember seeing Airplane on an airplane. This might work better though...
