In addition to the outrage about body scans and pat downs, some airline travelers, fed up with fussy or screaming children, are calling for airlines to implement child-free flights or at least designate “family only” sections on planes, the New York Times reported. According to one survey, 59 percent of passengers support having a special section on flights for families, and nearly 20 percent would like child-free flights. But neither option is likely to happen, given the financial problems of the airline industry and the logistical difficulty of both ideas. “No way is any airline going to discourage someone from taking one flight over another,” an industry spokesman said. Besides, as one travel adviser noted: “Plenty of business travelers are annoying, too.”
