An American woman has sparked a huge debate after calling for airlines to offer adult-only flights.

We've all had uncomfortable flights, whether sitting next to a total stranger who snores louder than a rhino or trying to ignore the kid behind relentlessly kicking your chair, it's easy to suggest ways to improve.

And Morgan Lee, from Florida, took to TikTok to do just that, after enduring a horrendous three-hour flight.

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 24-year-old, who currently lives in Vienna, went on to say: "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."

As you can imagine, there were some pretty mixed reactions to the video.

Some agreed with Morgan, with one user saying: "As a mom, I want an adult only flight too."

Another fellow parent chimed in, saying: "As a parent I 100 percent agree. I would love to be on an airplane and not get dirty looks or grunts from angry people that don’t like kids/noise."

Another even questioned why there was a debate arguing: "I don’t understand why parents are upset in the comments. You’re not asking them to do anything, you’re not even saying children shouldn’t fly."

Others didn't exactly see it Morgan's way, with one saying: "I don't have kids, but even I have the maturity and grace to accept my situation, especially when there are children involved."

While another wrote: "My heart 💔 Funny how people expect children to keep their emotions in check, but when adults have meltdowns we have to be understanding."

A third added: "PSA: if you’re having a hard time Bc my kid is having a hard time, we better call your mama bc im helpin my kid learn to regulate, what’s yours doin…?"

Another said that kids weren't the problem: "can I have an adultless flight? I've had more problems with adults on flights than I've ever had with kids on flights."

What do you think about Morgan's suggestion? Should we have adult-only flights be a thing, or should everyone just suck it up and accept the fact that flying is a pretty stressful experience for babies?
