I just use my mom's recipe

50/50 mix of Nyquil and Whisky.

Practice saying: "Was that a cough?"

A little vodka in the juice box works well too.

Traveling with young children is like trying to turn a cruise ship: It's cumbersome, takes a significant amount of planning and requires a team effort

Literally none of this is true.
Modern navigational equipment has made turning large ships easier than ever.

Instruments? Last damn thing I want to hear on a 17 hour flight is 17 hours of your child performing god-knows-what on a recorder.

Well that is only because of all of the significant planning and teamwork that went into building a state of the art ship.

You don't pull out of port and then decide, "You know what, we should install a rudder".  With both children and successful cruise ships, the planning needs to start before conception.  Also, don't skimp on the preventative maintenance is also critical for both.

/both are also floating disease vectors
//both also leave you trapped in the middle of the ocean unable to escape

I would happily fly in the baggage compartment on my next flight. I just need enough room to lay down and, well, oxygen.

Based on all the airport/plane rage videos, the toddlers aren't the ones we need cages for.

I vote for drugs or sleeping pills.

We flew to Europe once and a kid 3 rows up screamed the whole 8 hours.

From an early age make sure your children learn to master "sit still and shut up". A good part of teaching that skill is not hauling 4 tons of toys and activities for your kids every damn place you go. Oh you're bored? How about looking quietly out a window like the rest of us.

The baggage compartment of modern commercial aircraft is pressurized just like the passenger cabin, using the same air, so you'd be safe.  (Older airplanes had the option of cutting off the airflow to the cargo area because that air comes from the engines, and if an engine or its air conditioning system failed the older engines needed the help of cutting off the extra air to the cargo compartment.)
I can't guarantee space to lie down, and I'd recommend both a flashlight and a good lawyer.

My technique for dealing with kids on airplanes back when I flew all the time was to try and remember that I'm not the only person in the world and that kids need to get places too. I also drank a lot.

Costa Concordia disagrees with you.

So does all the other cruise ship accidents during turns.

Is heroin on the list? Cause it should be.

Condoms should be on the list. You should have started with condoms. Then, you wouldn't be in this mess. Or, if you're feeling adventurous, the rhythm method. It works half the time all of the time.

I didn't know what it was called but, I mastered the valsalva maneuver at a very young age so my ears didn't hurt. Plus, put me at a window and you'll shut me up for the whole trip. I loved and still love the landscape from the air except nowadays I have a super zoom lens to take fun pictures of what I see.

"Let's Go Fly A Kite" if you're like me you never get tired of that one, on a recorder.

I prefer regular sized gags. If I strapped on something child sized it would probably stain my neck.

And probably a good, well insulated sleeping bag.  Gets cold when you're flying a smidge higher than Mount Everest.
