Travelers are sympathetic to parents flying with kids

Traveling with children may not be as stressful as you think


As families stress over traveling with their small children this holiday season, a new study reveals many travelers will be sympathetic to parents.

Flying with children is tough, but a survey by Travelzoo finds close to 65% of travelers will be sympathetic to parents with crying babies, and will offer help and a smile.

On the flip side, when it comes to slightly older flying companions, the data shows 65% of those same respondents do get upset when there's a disruptive child on the flight.

When asked to choose which is worse, a delayed flight or a crying baby in an adjoining seat, 79% said a delayed flight is worse.
