    ETA - There are not that many flights from my city to Buffalo. If they limited the flights that children could go on, it would greatly hamper when a child could fly. They would not make more flight as they barely can fill the flights they have now. It would only take away from families. As I said, IMO this would only work in planes that had several compartments and both could still fly.
    This is a totally irrational fear. It would make no sense for an airline to make a limited flight (like adults only) on a route that they can't even fill with non restricted terms. It just wouldn't happen. The truth is that even if it DID somehow happen (which it would not) you could always fly ahead and have your children follow with your husband on a later flight. I see these flights being offered on frequent business travel routes (or red eyes from the west coast to the east), frequent adult destinations (like Vegas like Jessica mentioned) or other luxury destinations. I don't see the TN to Buffalo route being even considered. Again, it just doesn't make business sense. And at the end of the day, with you being so pro business freedom like you are, I still don't understand how you could seek to limit what business owners do to make their business more profitable.

    I think its a great idea and I would consider paying for an upgrade of that sort. I would do it on very long flights or flights that I knew are likely to have a lot of children.

    Kids are definitely different than adults and as long as we are accommodating to families, i see nothing wrong with offerring childfree environments too.

    Its not discrimination....we were all kids at some point in our lives, little, somewhat irrational beings, with low patience, limited understanding of the world and of adult social cues and had to deal with the fact that we weren't grown ups yet.

    Yep. I think they're very pro-kids When I flew back east alone when DD was 9 weeks old OMG, the flight attendants were all over us. "Here, let me hold her while you get seated", "I'll help you with the change table in the back" etc. etc. and coming over repeatedly to ask if there was anything I needed. All the children were basically seated in the middle of the plane, over the wings. We had our own little baby/toddler club.
