Passengers booking flights on the airline can now see a child icon that shows which of the other flyers are traveling with kids between the age of 8 days and 2 years old, according to CNN.
This means travellers can minimise their chances of having to deal with a crying baby or bratty kid that keeps kicking the back of a seat.
This may sound like a godsend, but USA Today warns not to take the map as gospel, since the icon only appears when customers with children on a flight purchase seats directly from the airline’s website.
Also, the icons may not show up properly if there is a change in aircraft.
Still, even the possibility of a peaceful flight is definitely appealing to some travelers who suffered through a miserable ones because of small children.
Some folks also are saying that displaying tolerance and empathy would serve passengers better than a baby map.
