Today, after years of wonderful flying experiences, I boarded a flight and took my seat only to find a baby sitting in front of me, behind me, and to the right of me, and across the aisle from me. All of whom decided to cry in unison. It was a 9-hour flight. FML

"And to the gentleman in Isle F and seat U (yes I know it's not letter-letter, but letter-number) if you look to your seats in front of you, behind you, and to your right, you'll see the second worst curse that's only possible on a plane, babies. May we suggest earphones next time?

#88 That would be a good idea. Part of the reason babies cry on airplanes might be because they're overwhelmed so a seperate cabin that's quiet and has soothing sounds might help keep them calm and reduce crying.

I wonder who made the seating arrangements? Probably sounded like this:

"We have three infants boarding this plane. If one cries, so does the other. Who should we seating in the middle of them?"
"Hmm, This fellow has had years of flying experience. S/he can probably last 9 hours."
"Sounds great!"


It actually does read as one in front, one to the the right, one behind and one across the isle (assuming its to the left if she had a right isle seat) which equals four. Unless it's just worded strangely and means the right baby was across the isle.


depending on the airline, most of the major airlines allow you to choose your own seat at booking the airline does not choose for you. the only one I know that is kind of a first come first serve is allegiant air.
