In what appears to be a growing trend there seems to be more in-flight fights and arguments these days…
These situations seem to be occurring due to a lack of personal space on planes. Maybe it’s someone reclining their seat (I think they have the right to do so if they want), a lack of overhead bin space or maybe someone just being too loud.
This time around, a fight started due to a crying baby. Yes, a crying baby.
On an Air China flight from Chongqing to Hong Kong, two women complained to another woman about her crying baby. Imagine the nerve.
The two women said the”baby was making too much noise and demanded she silence the child”. Talk about ridiculous. I can’t imagine the mom enjoying hearing her child cry and be uncomfortable and it’s not like she could just turn a switch a quiet down a crying baby…
According to Yahoo an argument started after this and the “two women reportedly retaliated by reclining their seats all the way back. And then it was “go time.”
The mom then shouted at the two women and according to another passenger, the mom then leaned over and punched one of them. “They then started hitting her and all hell broke loose.”
The plane ended up landing in Hong Kong on time and the police supposedly interviewed the parties involved.
So who’s to blame in this situation?
Luckily for Kim and I, Lucas has always been a great flyer. He’s had bouts of crying maybe a couple of times max. We tried as best possible to comfort him by walking to the back of the plane, giving him a bottle or doing other things along these lines.
In my opinion, if the two women didn’t have something helpful to say to the mom, they should’ve kept their mouthes shut. All they managed to do was make a stressful situation for the mom much worse.
