Air travel sucks because the seats are so damn cramped and there's always some annoying person making a ton of noise. Kids on long flights make it even more challenging. But hold up! There's this crazy viral picture of a little kid rockin' a glow-in-the-dark costume and totally keepin' the entire plane wide awake. This whole thing has got people thinking about bringing back "no-kids flights" so that everyone can have a more peaceful trip.
People Call For ‘No-Kids Flights’ After A Kid Keeps Plane Awake With Glow-In-The-Dark Costume
That mischievous grin is practically asking for trouble! With that sly smile, he shoots a bold look at the camera as the whole plane watches, mouths hanging open.
In this crazy situation, the kid knows he's a major annoyance, but the whole cabin stays silent, even with his dad relaxed right beside him.
It's the classic tale of in-flight mischief! It seems the young boy's dad isn't bothered at all by his son's spirited attempts to keep the whole plane wide awake.
The flight gets an unexpected dose of excitement thanks to the boy's bright, flashing glow-in-the-dark outfit.
Watching the video, a little chuckle just escapes. But come on - if anyone were on that exact flight, their inner Karen might have shown up.
And there's the forever-annoying headwear, forever preventing any chance of sleepiness. Picture this: you're on a red-eye flight, all ready to catch some much-needed rest, or at least giving it your best shot.
You're all set with your neck pillow and headphones for a cozy trip.
But out of nowhere, the cabin transforms into a neon light spectacle.
You start searching for the source of this unexpected brightness, and then you spot a little boy peeking over his seat, sporting a colorful, flashing rabbit hat.
You read that correctly: a rabbit hat with LED bunny ears that light up in a rainbow and dance when pulled.
And if you're having trouble imagining this quirky headgear, don't worry. Someone captured a video and posted it on Instagram for all to see.
"Keep an eye on your kid in public areas," is the unspoken plea here. As the video rolls on, the collective expressions of everyone on the flight reflect a clear lack of amusement.
The video has garnered a staggering 280k views and nearly 6k comments, serving as a virtual agreement that the annoyance is universally felt.
"If the parent refuses to take that off the child then the child is going to learn the truth about Santa, the Easter bunny and the tooth fairy all in under six minutes," joked one person.
Another had medical concerns for those on board: "May cause an epileptic to have seizures, so it's not cute. Educate yourself and your kids. The world doesn't revolve around you."
"Sick of people who don't control their children in public spaces," slammed a third.
Another echoed: "Parents need to be told that the whole world doesn't have to tolerate their children."
And this commenter concluded, "This is why we need the option for a no-kids flight when booking."
"This is plain rude," another person simply stated.
And finally, this woman wrote: "As a flight attendant I'd say put that it away. There are people trying to rest, read, watch a movie etc. Also, there are people with disabilities, and this can be incredibly annoying and irritating for them.
"Leave stuff like this for home or amusement parks. Not in a tiny tin can at 30 000ft in the air. Some folks have sensitive eyes please consider others around you."
However, the solution might not solely lie in "child-free" flights, as disturbances on flights can come from various sources.
In June of this year, a case emerged where tour operator TUI removed a group of seven men on a stag party from their flight due to their disruptive conduct, which included shouting and catcalling flight attendants. How delightful.
