The No-Cry Zone

Some people will tell you there are worse fates than sitting near a screaming child on a long flight. I am not one of those people. So when I first heard a friend propose the idea of “child-free flights,” I was intrigued. Over the past year, the idea seemed to gain steam. But for some reason, nobody was asking the airlines themselves. So I did. Long story short, it ain’t gonna happen. Wah.
