    Scoot creates child-free 'silent' zone on planes

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Full marks to Scoot Airlines (never heard of em till now) sounds like a great idea.
    Scoot Airline Creates Child Free Zone

    "The airline's international head of marketing, Stuart Myerscough, said guest feedback had been "overwhelmingly positive" I can well understand why.

    Our very own Mod Scootagal (sometimes known as Scoots) has a pilot licence if i remember correctly; definitely involved in aviation. You haven't gone into partnership with Singapore Air have you Scoots?

    When I first looked at the topic I read it as "Scoota_gal creates child-free 'silent' zone on planes". It wasn't until I read the post that I got it right.

    Hahaha! No I'm in partnership in an aerial spray business! And I just pay pilots to fly for me, I don't have a pilot's licence.

    What a great idea but I wonder what the backlash is going to be from parents feeling "discriminated"...

    In this post 2001 world of ours, people who run riot on aircraft tend to get plasti-cuffed and then gaffer taped to their seats... perhaps this rather eloquent method of maintaining the peace can be applied in cafes as well
    scoota_gal and Yelta like this.

    On the contrary, I think it is great for parents. Now if people complain about your noisy kids, you can respond with "so you should have paid for 'kid free'.

    Now that the Libs are going to pay them more to have kids, the parents of the future will be able to pay extra to have them kept in a sound proof section of the plane.

    I wish they would create a drunk adult zone for all those people that think a flight is supposed is a great opportunity to get smashed and annoy us while we are trying to enjoy our flights
