Participants were asked to state what aspects of flying had annoyed them
Research has shown that loud children are the biggest bugbear for British air passengers, to the extent that more than half would support the introduction of adult-only flights.
Be it high-pitched crying or rowdy playing, 63% of adult air passengers rate loud children as the top in-flight annoyance, trumping other passengers reclining seats (61%), non-allocated seats (53%) and poor airline food (51%).
The findings came to light in a poll by Jetcost.co.uk, in which 1,666 people aged 18 and over participated.
Participants, all of whom had flown in the past 24 months, were asked to state what aspects of flying had annoyed them the most in the past, selecting those that applied from a list of possible answers.
travel insurance can't guarantee you a quiet flight, it offers vital protection in the event of any holiday hiccups or unforeseen circumstances.
The survey found more than 50% would back the introduction of 'adult-only' flights.
