If you can trace your mind back to last week, you may recall a TikToker calling for adult-only flights after a child screamed constantly during his 29-hour journey. Here’s a reminder of his ordeal:

The row came to light on the platform after the holidaymaker shared a video of his lengthy flight, believed to be from New Zealand to Berlin, where a baby on board appeared to be crying for the entirety of the journey.

Babies being... well, babies on public transport has long been a divisive talking point on social media. While some people are adamant that 'child-free flights' should exist, others take the view that babies cry, and other passengers need to get over it.

Well, people have since taken to the comments section of the video to share their thoughts on the man’s ideas - and it’s safe to say they’re not happy.

One person understood why the child was crying, writing: “Kids ears are probably popping, mine used to hurt on a drive through the hill country, can’t imagine a flight.”

“Must be their ears,” someone else echoed. “Kids are sensitive to height and yes, the moms are the most stressed.”

“Doesn’t phase me because I’m in agony on every flight from cabin pressure affecting my ears,” someone else said, sympathising for the baby. “I can only imagine how much it hurts a child.”

Another onlooker expressed how ‘bad’ they feel for the parents of the screaming child in question, writing: “I feel so bad for those parents. They must be so stressed out, not to mention all the judgemental people just adding to their personal horror.”

Elsewhere, another viewer explained how instead of judging the child or parents in this situation, they would offer a helping hand.

“If I have my hands free, I always offer to help if I see a parent struggling. Don’t for a moment think the parent is having a fun time.”

“I always find it funny how people forget they were once kids in these scenarios,” another simply concluded.

Last month, we told you how one woman sparked debate after also calling for airlines to offer adult-only flights.

A child could be heard screaming behind as the passenger asked: "Why isn’t there such a thing as adult-only flights? I would pay so much money.

"The flight was three hours and I listened to this the entire time. I have noise cancelling headphones, the child was well over five years old, and they sat directly behind me while kicking my chair as the mother slept."
