Misschien kan het cabinepersoneel iets voor haar doen.--ReplyLinda T. Weston4 months agoIt seems to me that the other first class people wouldn't be happy with a crying baby among them. They also paid a lot of money to have a peaceful flight. I think the mother was just looking for an excuse and if, as suggested, the person had given up their seat for a 'short period of time' ... they would have difficulties getting it back. The mother would say 'Oh, I just got him/her to sleep. I don't want to move and wake him/her up.'2-ReplyCaryn Morgan4 months agoLinda T. WestonMy sentiments exactly! First class people would have complained up a storm. Also, she may not wanted to give the seat back.1-ReplyGee Em4 months agoI think you were right to keep yourselves in first class. The woman shouldn't have even been allowed to approach you like that, and it was very selfish of her. If she knew she was flying with a baby, and wanted first class, she should have paid for it, for the sake of her baby. Not try to get the sympathy of strangers to do what she was not willing to do. I think the advice in this column was wrong. But that is just me. You earned those seats, and no one should guilt trip you out of them.2-ReplyS B4 months agoIts up to the Airline to reseat the Mother and baby if they are unhappy with where they were seated. Customers should never be disturbed if they are sitting in a paid seat ie 1st class unless they used points to upgrade or etc - but that should be totally up to an airline to ask a passenger not passengers asking other passengers to move seats.1-ReplyKarla Dooley3 months agoThere's no guarantee that moving to first class would stop the baby's crying. Your answer implies that the poster was not empathetic in the first place, which doesn't seem to be true. Shame on you!!In my opinion, they were right to keep the seats they had carefully saved and planned for, and enjoy the rewards. Yes, they could have offered to pass along some perks, but they weren't obligated to do so.Plus, why did the mother approach them? What about the other first class passengers?1-ReplyDebbie Hickey Tillmanweek agoI have flown many times and could never afford first class. You saved for it and there is no reason to give up your seats to anyone else. Whether or not the baby would cry has nothing to do with where it is seated. I think that if you are in first class you are not allowed to send your perks back to others not seated in first class. I'm glad you kept your seats.--ReplySign in, to add a comment
