Interested in kid-free zone seating on an airplane? Singapore Airlines has the right idea with their budget carrier, Scoot. According to NBC News Aug. 23, an offer called "Scoot in silence" is available for passengers who want guaranteed space from children 12 and under on their flight.
Scoot flies from Singapore to 11 destinations around Asia and Australia. Their "Scoot in silence" allows airline passengers to sit at the front of the economy class cabin, a kids-free zone. It only costs $14 per ticket and covers getting more legroom and the promise that “the under 12s will be someplace else.”
Scoot Airlines is joining a growing list of air carriers that offer child-free seating. Earlier this year, the budget airline, Air Asia X, came up with the idea of kids-free seating on their planes. They introduced "Quiet Zone" on their A330 planes. In 2012 Malaysia Airlines reserved upper decks of their A380s as kid-free zones. Malaysia also prohibits children from flying in their first class cabins.
Will airlines in the U.S. soon offer the same kind of option to their passengers? Would you pay extra for guaranteed seating from children?
