Having conducted an exhaustive, laborious and truly scientific survey of the voices in my head, I can confirm that they all really, really hate one thing – kids on planes.

I know, I know. We're all meant to accept that the little mites can experience pain in their ears during take off, they become bored easily and if they're not suitably stimulated, they can become restless and cranky.

As a result of these circumstances we are all meant to be kind and caring fellow passengers, and we're meant to support parents with stroppy kids rather than spend the entire flight sending filthies in their direction.
