Is it selfish to take a child on a long-haul flight? | Updated: 2017-01-13 17:01

I don't know why they kept referring to them as 'screaming babies'. Why not just babies?" Yes! Babies cry whenever and wherever they please… time to get over that fact of life. The days of anyone actually enjoying a flight are long gone. I never feel bad about bringing my daughter onto the plane. If she's crying and disrupting the person next to me, of course I apologize as I would in any other social setting. But I won't be staying locked up at home with her until she's 6. That's just ridiculous.
