Malaysia Airlines bans babies from first class

An international airline has banned infants from first class on its Boeing 747-400 jets. Malaysia Airlines' new rule comes after officials received several complaints from passengers, NBC affiliate WHEC-TV reports.

Travelers with babies will now have to book seats in business or economy class, which are equipped with bassinets.

Routes affected by the ban include long-haul flights from Kuala Lumpur to Amsterdam, London and Sydney.

In February, several airlines including British Airways and Virgin Atlantic were considering creating children-free flights.

I am 100% not a baby person. Yet, I think this ruling is over the top. Planes are public transportation. You by a ticket and you get on. If you got money for first class baby tickets go for it. You shouldn't be stopped just because your baby is loud. People need to be able to get from point a to B and should not be hindered just because they have to bring the baby along.


  1. I agree with your point, But there are others who say they pay a premium price for Comfort & Happy ride, rather than getting disturbed by others.

    1. I flew with my baby from Chicago to Amsterdam, about 12 hours, and he was happy as a clam. It was even an overnight flight and he did not disturb anyone. Don't assume babies are going to fuss and cry nonstop. I've had plenty of flights where I jad to sit next to someone with B.O., who talked incessantly, kicked my seat, etc.
