Kristen Wince said she might have been one of those members - before her son was born.

"Yes, having been flying with no children, it seems like a good idea," she said. "Flying with children, it seems like a really bad idea."

Because you’re a gentleman. You take under consideration the effects your actions have on the comfort of others in an airplane and behave accordingly, while others think only of themselves.

Was he teething?

Took my little 1+ year old guy back and forth from Hawaii in his jammies and he was good and slept half the way.
I had toys, treats and took him on a walk through the plane a couple of times.

I want terrorist free flights. And the toddlers they are giving “random inspections” to don’t appear to me to be life threatening passengers.
