Qantas has defended its policy, saying it is consistent with that of other airlines around the world and reflects parents' concerns.

If the parents are so concerned why don't they just ACCOMPANY THEIR F*CKING CHILDREN???

Obviously the parents weren't concerned about sending the child on a flight by herself. I guess we went from helicopter parents to making airplane parents?

I had a flight when I was around 30 and there was an unaccompanied child next to me, kid was about 10 or 11 I think.

Normally I just pop in the ear buds and watch the TV or play DS but this kid was practising card tricks and he was doing sleight of hand tricks. It was totally awesome, as the kid was pretty good.

When I was 15 I flew to and from Nevada by myself for a Girl Scout trip; I don't recall any special seating arrangements for any of the legs (and there were several, each way). My mom also didn't give me any 'special' safety instructions other than the usual.

"Male flying alone and seated next to a minor?"

So any woman flying with her husband or boyfriend should be financially compensated by Qantas for keeping the potential child-molester under control for the duration of the flight.

Well, 15 is a lot different than 15. The people that booked the airline should have been more aware of the age thing, not that there aren't female pedophiles. Glad nothing bad happened to you.

It's a sad world we live in. ~sigh~

In defense of the airline, they should take all steps to ensure that a child isn't seated next to a Penn State alum, but maybe they're going overboard.

when I was on the old Iwo Jima there was this navy bosun who would walk up while we were playing cards, ask if it was a full deck and if we would say yes he would hand one of us a sealed envelope and have that person shuffle and cut the deck and flip the cut up to show the bottom card, then he would have that person open the envelope and in it would be a piece of paper with the fricken card he had just cut to written on it, he did this every few days choosing different people and decks each time and was never wrong, I have not met anyone till this day who can tell me how the SoB did it

I'm ok with this. All men are presumed to be rapists and pedophiles until proven otherwise. The only way to prove you're not a rapist or a pedophile is to die without having raped anyone. Until then, you're a rapist and a pedophile.

I like this last bit about a British Airways customer who sued for the same reason:

BA denied its policy was discriminatory but admitted to sex discrimination in Mr Fisher's case and agreed to pay him £2161 in costs and £750 in damages.

I didn't think that people could sue for so small an amount of money.

A while back, here on Fark, I remember somebody gave the BEST.ADVICE.EVAR for dealing with the situation of kids running up and down the aisles of the airplane: tell the flight attendant, very discretely, that every time that kid runs past you, it is technically a violation of your parole.

GENIUS!
 
2012-08-15 02:59:33 AM
I wouldn't mind this - if it weren't a retarded law.

The majority of child molesters are family friends.
The majority of child molesters are female.

It's like racial profiling. I'm *okay* with it, but good god, if you are going to do it - do it factually.

Gotta love the mindset that only males are pedophiles and females could never become a pedophile.

12 years ago I flew from Dallas to Denmark. Before we left a member of the flight crew asked me to change seats. I asked "Why?" because I was curious. He said "If you do, I'll get you something for your troubles." I said "Okay." I was flying alone so what did it matter? He handed me a bottle of champagine. That was awesome.

If I'm ever seated next to an unaccompanied minor, it's going to take a bit to get me to change seats. Not because I'm a pedo. But because if I change seats, I risk the public embarassment that this guy went through, and if I do sit next to an unaccompanied minor for the entire freakin flight and don't cause shiat, then I could be the example pointed to as "All males aren't horny pedos looking for unaccompanied minors on airlines to molest as soon as the lights go low."

You can still be labelled a rapist, posthumously. So you might as well get all the raping in while you can, since it's assumed you raped your way to the grave.

Who the heck wants to sit next to a child anyway? I'd be thanking the flight attendant for getting me out of there. I flippin' hate kids.

JesseL: Safer to have them sit next to a male nurse than a female teacher.


You jest, but it does demonstrate the stupidity of this "OMG a man!" thing. We have plenty of evidence that women have sex with minors too just in the news (never mind if you actually dig up court cases). However for some reason there's still this idea that men are all dangerous with children and women are perfectly safe.

People need to just STFU, chill out, and look up some damn statistics. Are there people out there that molest random children? Yes, but not many. Most sexual abuse takes place by someone the kid knows, family most often, but also friends of the family, teachers, etc. Very rare is it some random dude.

And on a plane? Are you farking kidding me? The most public of all public venues?

This stuff is just reaching retarded levels.

I get that he is an angry nurse (they're all angry and for good reason; I have nothing but respect for nurses) and would not hurt a child, but to expect that the whole policy be scrapped is being a whiny c*nt about a tactless flight attendant.

Parents feel safer taking their chances having their kids sit next to stange women than strange men. Period. I ride the bus and T every day and see it all the time. Even with teachers banging their way thru middle schools, being a damn nurse he should still know that FACT; it's definitely mentioned in psych class. Though not all parents are as fortunate to have a male nurse to be sitting next to their kid if god forbid something happen. But come on guy, how are they supposed to know that?

That flight attendant SHOULD have thanked him, too. As well as apologize to all three of them for moving the both of them and probably embarrassing the little girl in the process. If this is standard policy, then it should be part of the damn safety speech. "And to close, as per policy, if you are a single male sitting next to an unaccompanied minor, please switch with the nearest female willing to move seats." A simple sentence, and many a PR situations and possible lawsuits avoided. YOUR WELCOME.

Hopefully all the passengers of that flight can read this article so he can be vindicated of his shame !

Lesson for the flight attendants: A little forethought, tact, and free booze goes a long way. Its called people skills.

CSB time

Once I (late 20s male in a three piece business suit) was seated at the window next two girls. They looked to be 13-16 and on some sort of sports team. There were about 20 of these girls all wearing identical sweat suits.

Before the take-off, the stewardess asked me to change seats so the girls could sit next to their friend. I dont know if it was because of a similar policy on Alaska Airlines. I didnt give 2 shiats or a fark since I got 3 free beers on top of not having to sit next to annoying teens.

I was seated next to a young boy on a Qatar Airways flight some months ago. I'm a middle-aged man, and I was traveling alone. The boy was accompanied, but his whole family couldn't fit in the row behind me, so he sat up front with me. He flopped and frisked around and stood on his chair a bit, but I ignored him and played a game on my laptop with noise-blocking headphones on. Midway through the flight comes a tap on my shoulder and a stewardess inviting me to change seats. She wanted me to move to the seat aft of the emergency exit, so I leapt at the opportunity. I had a fleeting suspicion that Mom and Dad were worried about me playing with his dick or something, but the extra legroom more than compensated for it.
