Tots on flights

Poor kids – everyone (sometimes even their parents) hate having kids on a flight.  They can’t help it.  It’s boring and their ears hurt.  Having said that there is nothing worse than sitting next to a crying fidgeting child.  Moms hate it too.  They just want to have a decent flight like anybody else and usually feel really bad if their child can’t get to sleep on a flight.

So this idea is really brilliant – it’s called the Fly Tot – and the idea is so basic.  A blow up cube that turns the kid’s seat into a bed.

Fly Tot

What a clever idea – parents have been reviewing this product and raving about how amazing it is – especially for long haul flights.  How cute are these two

It got me thinking….(always a dangerous thing).  As a short person (vertically challenged) maybe I could make use of a device like this.  It would certainly be a lot better than some of the other devices that have been invented to help you sleep on a flight.  This lady did not need a device but just made use of the seat cover

Very smart!  Unlike this guy who resorted to the old blow up neck pillow.  Everyone uses them and they just don’t work – at least not for me and certainly not for him.

Ouch – sore neck in the morning.

I don’t get this one at all….

But maybe that’s just me.  This one seems to be rather dangerous.

  1. In some of those pictures just wait until some big over weight lug decides to throw his seat back with no consideration of the person behind them ( which has happened to me a number of times). I have had my tablet that I was watching a movie on knocked over more than once causing me to loose the movie I was watching or hair and dandruff coming over the edge of their seat in the back position on to my food and drink on to my tray. many people have no manners at all or consideration for other people in these cramped aircraft now days.We are just treated like cattle. especially on Air Canada Rouge flights out of Canada.
