Babies have been banned from the first class section in Malaysia Airlines 747 and most recently in its Airbus A380 jets.
Tengku Azmil, Malaysia Airlines CEO told Australian Business Traveller in a Twitter exchange, “we are planning to stick to our policy for now.” In his defense, he explains that while it was a “tough call” it will control first class passengers from complaining that they spent too much money to listen to babies crying.
This may upset parents who enjoy the comfort of first class seating. Perhaps now they will look into other options for flying. Those who can splurge will look into traveling on a private jet, that way there is no one to upset next to you when your baby is crying. That’s the best part of being on a private jet you have your own personal space!
