How to avoid screaming kids when you fly

There are several passengers you don't want to get seated next to when you fly. 

There is the coughing, spluttering virus-spreading idiot; there fatty who spills into your space and the endlessly screaming child. 


There is not much you can do about the first two, but Japan Airlines has released a new online seat booking feature which warns passengers where young toddlers will be seated on a flight.

Although youngsters under two won't be allocated a seat, a ''child" icon will appears on the seating plan when a passenger is travelling with children aged under two years.

JAL says it "lets other passengers know a child may be sitting there," although it says it will only show up for bookings made through direct channels.

"Passengers travelling with children between eight days and two years old who select their seats on the JAL website will have a child icon displayed on their seats on the seat selection screen," says the airline's website.

But children will not show up if there is a last-minute change of aircraft type.

The news has split flyers, with a mixed response on social media.
