Airline Wants To Ban Babies From 1st Class
AOL.COM - First-class passengers aboard some Malaysia Airlines flights won't have to worry about being woken up by a crying baby anymore.
The airline has banned infants in first class of its Boeing 747-400 jets, and has plans to do the same in their new Airbus A380 superjumbo jets, the Australian Business Traveller reported.
Amidst the controversial move, Azmil took to his Twitter account to defend the company's decision not to install bassinets in its Boeing 747-400 first class cabin. In response to a post about the ban, Azmil tweeted: "Also hv many complaints from 1st class pax dat dey spend money on 1st class & can't sleep due to crying infants."
Travelers with babies will now have to book seats in business or economy class, which are equipped with bassinets.
Routes affected by the ban include long-haul flights from Kuala Lumpur to Amsterdam, London and Sydney.
In February, several airlines including British Airways and Virgin Atlantic were considering creating children-free flights.
