A PASSENGER was stunned after parents let their children run wild during a long-haul flight.
A video posted on Reddit said: “Letting children run wild during an 8-hour flight”.
It’s not clear where the passenger was traveling to or where he was traveling from, but they filmed some of the bad behavior.
In the video, a child was caught jumping up and down with bare feet on the extended tray table.
The poor passenger in front is then thrown back and forth by her jumping.
Thousands of people commented on the video, many stunned by the rude behavior.
One person wrote, “I would feel like a failed parent if my kids did that and I would just let it happen.”
Another agreed: “My only child is a Tornado and there is no way I would allow her to act like that in public let alone on a flight.”
One person who said they were a frequent flyer gave their own advice.
He said, “Ask politely. In addition, do not intervene, call the flight attendant.
“You will ask them to stop and if they refuse they will usually move you to a higher quality seat if available.
A flight attendant also chimed in, saying: “One trick we always tried first was when I was one [flight attendant] was to ask the captain to put up the seat belt sign and make an announcement that everyone MUST be in their seats IMMEDIATELY.”
Another traveler recently shared his experience after a child screamed throughout the 29-hour flight.
And a man recently asked if he was wrong in blaming a couple for misbehaving their children on a flight.
Children on planes were a contentious issue – some even called for child-free flights.
