We talk to the adventurer about his new Australia show and whether it is just "a patch of Blighty on the other side of the world".
Even the most badly behaved kid will have a hard time not being entranced by these on-board treats
Unhappy children on a flight are no picnic for the other people on board as well as the poor parents who have to look after them. Some pull out all the stops to make sure you have the smoothest journey possible (mostly by distracting them as much as possible), so from the in-flight 'nanny' to special snack boxes, take a look at these, the most child-friendly airlines.

Jim Rogers, you were a child once, REMEMBER? It's people with attitudes like yours who should be banned from flying, not innocent children.
Kids will be kids and parents will be parents - Some kids are brought up to respect other people and some are left to run wild
.In restaurants you can tell the well parented kids as you can on airplanes
All kids have tantrums , wriggle and become bored easily .and it is true that when younger kids neen to eat or be toileted it is an immediate need - - - - -the problem in most cases is the parents and how they deal with these issues , also other passengers should remember that we were all kids once upon a time
To all those below complaining about children on planes:
Don't be so ignorant. At least all you have to do is ignore the noise. Grow up. Think about the parents who have not only the chilren to worry about but also the selfish passengers who are giving them dirty looks!
Most children will become bored or restless when couped up indoors on rainy day. Being couped up in a plane is much worse. Well done to all the parents who manage to engage their young children enough with some kind of activity and keep them quiet for even part of the journey!
kids will be kids.......we are going to greece either this year or the next year and i personally could not give two monkeys if there will be kids screaming or shouting cuz guess what folks THEY ARE KIDS
plus it wud take my mind off the couple thoursand mile drop downwards haha
i wud rather entertain them than shout or scream at them or the mother and father
the days of being a good upstanding member of humanity has long past
i say this to people who are flying or going to fly if u dont like the kids screaming or shouting put headphones in ur ears with music = peace and quiet or be a decent honorable human being and entertain them even if they are not ur kids cuz at the end of the day they are the next generation and we should respect that we are the older generation and we should know better cuz guess what we was kids once
Children kicking the back of the seat on a long haul flight!!!
Child!!! GO AWAY!!!!
MOTHER>>> SORT YOUR CHILD OUT!!!!!!
Can MSN please tell me why we are only allowed to comment on these purile, insignificant stories and not on the issues of the day?
Could they be in the pockets of the government (re Murdoch etc.)
So its about MONEY really? To quote Becki:
"As you may find that a family with children would have paid considerably more to the airline than yourself, therefore making families more appealing to the airline. maybe you yourself should holiday in this country to avoid being so selfish to hardworking parents who would like to show their children some of what the world has to offer"
Its a CORPORATE LOGO! My children are not for sale!
When flying I actually bother to tell my kids that there are people asleep on the flight, who have a busy day ahead and we should respect them, besides we need to save all our energy for our holiday. How is that offensive? Am I BAD for teaching respect and restraint? Is that selfish?
"Hardworking parents" Oh please, it was our CHOICE to have kids and if we dont work we will look like spongers to the rest of society.
As for showing them "what the world has to offer", get your kids to look out the window and see how many towns/villages they can count on the journey and the winner gets a prize (Not something Hello Kitty, cos they are doing just fine)". Keeps em quiet the whole flight as thats all there is. Look out there yourself and see that this planet is pretty much full.
I know this is a consumer society but so are locusts. By 2050 there wont be eough land on the planet to feed its population. This is why I take a stand and say we've got to stop constantly putting families and kids at the front of every advertisement just to make more profit.
As I said "My kids are not for sale" I have brought them up to care about more than themselves and how they look to society doesnt mean just giving money to the corporation with the biggest advertising budget.
i have a daughter who wants to go on a areoplane but is frightened this would be a way forward to expel her fear and with trained support of staff i also see this as a plus
You strike me as the traveler who is rude to the cabin crue, drops your seat thus disrupting the passenger behind and then (if not already) gets pissed and is rude to everyone.
