 Surprised the plane wasn't in full revolt. I would have put some effort into organizing a coalition.

And course you can't say anything.  Not one person could tell her to keep her kid in check, else it would be a PR nightmare.

Headphones cranked and lots of booze.  I would have made it pretty easily.
I've never flown international, is the booze still free?

there was a child on my flight from Manchester to Houston that made me ponder jumping out the door. Even on the ground the child only seemed to communicate in scream

To be fair.  That is the normal response when being told you're going to Newark.

It would have almost been worth dealing with the authorities once you landed if you put the kid into a deep sleep.

Yup, same. Either my JBL or Bose noise canceling headphones go with me on every flight -- and I travel a lot on business. My last international flight (San Diego to Venice) was pretty sedate. Lots of free booze, but perhaps it was just the section we were sitting in; coming back, the plane was half-empty, so that meant getting a whole row to sleep in during the redeye.

1) I drink a lot on flights, but I need to buy better headphones....the Sony noise-cancelling ones do very little to drown out a crying or screaming kid.  IMHO, that noise is worse "than nails on a chalkboard".

2) Yes....although it depends on the airline.  (I flew international first class back in October....on my birthday.  Good times.)

The part where it says "the mother just let him do whatever he wants".

This baffles me. Is this some kind of skill people acquire after having children?
I see kids like this at stores. Whether it's the grocery store, target or what ever, there's some little shiat running around screaming, raising hell and just being a general asshole. And then there's the mother, just casually browsing like she doesn't even notice. Just going on about her business like it's not even her kid.

How do they do that? I don't have kids but if I did and if this were my kid, I can't imagine it wouldn't annoy the fark out of me too. It's like a super power or something.

Those parent are shiatty AF.

I remember being a little kid, and my parents were not afraid to take me out of the restaurant and out into the parking lot...or the car.

I don't have kids, and you damn right I would complain if I were in that situation.  You don't have the right to have your kid run around like a goddamn howler monkey and bother everyone....especially when those people are trying to enjoy their vacation...or at the very least, get some rest before starting a business trip.

Better yet, give the kid whatever Mom is on.  She's got to be on something good to put up with that.

The baby is 1 year old and has been a good flyer but on short flights, like maybe an hour and 15 min max.  Taking her cross country in a few weeks and really hoping that we don't have to give in and break rules to keep her entertained.  Rules like using electronics to distract, doubling up on snacks, etc.

It never once occurred to me to just stop trying to keep her happy and calm.  I didn't even realize that we could just say "f it" when she's having a meltdown and watch tv or something.  This mom is giving me something to consider, for sure.

As the parent of a four year old.....

Aww..hell no.

My child would never get away with this.   He would get a solid scolding, and if that didn't work, taken to the bathroom for a swift spanking, and he would spend the rest of the flight sniffling quietly.

Of course, he knows not to do this in the first place, and I would be prepared with books and coloring books, and videos on his Kindle to keep him from getting bored.   It's not that hard.

This kid had NOTHING to keep him occupied.

I was on an international flight and had to sit next to a kid and his mother, kid was about 8.

Mother had that huge backpack, tablets, toys, food....  Unline when I was a kid, a book and told to sit still.

She pulls out a little garbage can and puts a little bag in and puts it in his lap.

I ask her why.

She tells me he gets motion sickness if he looks out the window, it makes him throw up, so she brings the little can.

I say "How about you don't let him look out the window?"  And she flips out on me saying "How dare you tell me how to raise my child, looking out the window is harmless, you are some kind of monster."

She screeches to the stewardess she wants to change seats because she is uncomfortable sitting next to someone who hates children,  Of course I get the stink eye from the stewardess, but the guy in front of me explains the situation, that I only asked why and then offered a solution.  He also said I was polite.  He said that he did not want to sit anywhere near someone who knew they were gonna barf.

So the lady starting yelling we all hated kids.  I got moved to first first class and she got moved to the back of the plane to where the seats do not recline and had to sit next to the shiatter.

In the Zevon household, physical punishments were reserved for the direst of actions.
This kid passed this in the first thirty seconds--climbing up on the back of the seat? Screaming?

I do have empathy for that kid, though.  Growing up, any time I was on a flight, it was a one-way ticket to Puke Town...population:  me.

Remember the scene in Kindergarten Cop where Arnold told loses it, starts yelling "SHUT UP!  SHUT UP!"  and made the kids cry?  I would be just like that...but without the Austrian accent.

Nahh, she admitted he was fine if he did not look out the window.  So instead of thinking about the 100 other people on the flight, she wanted her kid to be able to look out the window and barf.

Yeah, I am 48 and I asked my mother if i did that, and she said "twice, and your grandmother told you if you did it again, she would spank you in the middle of the malldrop your pants, and spank you in front of everyone and gods createion". Grandma did.  I was like 4-5.

I havent spoken a word in public since.
