Nobody likes crying babies on a flight. Especially if you have sensory issues, difficulty sleeping, anxiety, and on top of that, forgot your beloved pair of headphones. At a certain point in your 6-hour flight, you start questioning your life choices and realized that you can only submit to the situation.
A man shared a clip from a flight that was heading to Fort Lauderdale from Baltimore on a holding pattern. A man couldn’t take it anymore – a baby was crying for 40 minutes.
The flight was delayed due to the weather and on top of that, everyone had to listen to the Florida man throw a tantrum alongside a crying baby.
Attempts were made to calm the man down but he remained persistent that something had to be done with the baby.
Crying babies are definitely the last thing you want on your flight. But really, there was nothing that could be done, and yelling about it isn’t going to help.
Everyone was deplaned and the man who filmed it couldn’t help but laugh at how ridiculous the situation is.
People get stressed and ticked on flights and it’s worse when you’re on long connecting flights because you’re exhausted and the economy seats are some of the worst seats to get your sleep on.
“Air rage” isn’t a healthy behavior and can even be dangerous and interestingly, it is affected by something as simple as the seat’s space. One study revealed that the idea of being “confined” with many people is a key factor in the common irritation seen by flight passengers.
While not trying to defend this man’s behavior, it can certainly be hell when you have to listen to a crying baby for such an extended time period. But, a baby has a right to travel with their parents and we, as fully functional adults, must understand when babies can’t help it.
