Scoot Airlines, a Singapore based budget carrier, thinks you are. For as little as $14.50 you could sit in rows 21 through 25, 41 seats in all, that were free from kids.
But that’s not the only benefit. You also get more legroom and four extra inches of pitch. (it’s worth the extra money just for the extra room.)
I checked the seat map and the airline only flies Boeing 777’s. The child-free section is separated from other seats so there is no worry of a screaming baby sitting in the row in front or back of you.
And they’re not the only airline to do this. Air Asia X banned under 12’s from the first seven rows of its economy cabin and Malaysia Airlines has banned them from the first class cabins on their A380’s and 747’s.
It’s interesting that only Asian based carriers have done this.
Now, how about a recline free zone where the person in front of you can’t recline his or her seat?
What do you think? Good idea or bad? Would you be willing to pay for sitting in a quiet area?
