The article presents the author's views on starting kids free flights where children below a particular age group will not be allowed. He states that during air travel noises from children can cause extra tensions for business travelers who may have to attend business meetings after the flight. He suggests that due to economic factors and fuel costs starting a new airline would not be possible but starting flights at certain time such as after-10 p.m. flights for adults-only can be a good option.
