This story is pretty similar to the passenger list-checking-parent.Whenever husband and I are on a long flight, the first thing we check for is junta around us.
Kids below 2.. *sigh..* - *no no* .
Let me admit that nothing can be more irritating than a kid screaming on flight. Now I can already see yummy-mummies with broom sticks saying "After all they are kids.. the take off-landing makes them scream. Kids are kids .. What do you know etc etc.
Guys, am being very honest. It is irritating.. It really is. But over the years, we have realised that it is better to have two screaming with us us than one Gujarati / Punjabi.
