Would you pay more for a flight without crying, fussy babies? A majority of those on the Internet would! Kelly-Rose Bradford, a mom herself, appeared on a UK talk show last week and suggested airlines offer child-free flights for those who don’t want to deal with other people’s kids while en route to their destinations, and sparked a debate online.

"Is it really necessary to take a tiny baby on a long flight?” said Bradford, who has a 12-year-old daughter, according to the Today show. “I think there's an element of selfishness from parents who insist on not changing their lifestyle once they have their children because there are some things that just aren't practical."

Bradford suggested that airlines offer child-free flights and child-free zones. "We've got business class, we've got first class, why can't we have a family section?"

Of course some were opposed to the idea, but surprisingly, Bradford got a positive reaction from the Twitterverse.
