Passenger slams parents after they let toddler ‘pull his ears and headphones’ during flight

A HOLIDAYMAKER complained after a young child tugged on his ears and removed his headphones during a flight.

Brian shared his misery in a video he posted on TikTok where he shows the gleeful baby ‘pull his ears’.

The social media influencer captioned it: “Kids on planes are the worst.”

He then showed himself sitting down in an economy seat when the toddler behind him grabbed his ear and head pulling at his headphones – complete with a cheeky little grin.

Brian carefully moves the child’s hand away, only for it to return on several occasions.

In a voiceover, he said: “I can’t believe these parents let their baby do this the entire flight. I tried to be nice. What would you do?”

The video quickly went viral and has since been viewed by 6 million people, liked by 127,000 users and received 10,000 comments.

Users were quick to notice the resemblance between the influencer and the child with many saying ‘that’s his kid’, noting the similarities between their ears and eyes.

But the influencer later commented saying: “I have twins but this is not one of my twins.”

Even so, many users weren’t convinced and discussed the possibility of a third child in the comments.

However, those who thought the baby was a complete stranger to Brian weren’t happy with the parents.

One person wrote: “Mom of two small boys, this isn’t ok and it’s ok for you to tell the parents that. They’re being incredibly inconsiderate.”

Someone else added: “I have kids myself. The parents are being inconsiderate. I wouldn’t let my kids mess with the person’s ears in front of them.”

A third said: “It’s not the kid it’s the parents!”

It’s certainly not the first time a child has annoyed a passenger on a flight.

Recently, a woman divided opinion online after complaining about a child crying on her flight.

She said: “I have noise cancelling headphones, the child was WELL over five years old, and they sat directly behind me while kicking my chair as the mother slept.”

In her video she wanted to know why adult-only fights weren’t an option.

But some airlines have already answered calls for child-free planes – a budget airline has launched new cheap flights between the UK and Thailand – and there is even a section for passengers who want to avoid screaming kids.

Passengers rave about ‘perfect’ hand luggage bag that fits most airlines including Ryanair

BUDGET travellers have shared rave reviews for a bag that fits most airlines’ hand luggage size limits, including Ryanair.

Finding a bag that can fit everything needed for a holiday, without adding any excess baggage fees can be difficult, but there are affordable options out there.

Amazon

The bag is lightweight but also designed to carry heavy loads for passengers[/caption]

The Cuqoo 2022 bag is one such option, and is currently available on Amazon from £11.99.

The bag promises to fit perfectly as an under-seat or cabin bag.

Its measures at 40x20x25cm, compliant with most major airlines including Ryanair, easyJet, British Airways, Etihad, Delta, Flybe, Lufthansa, Norwegian, Jet2, KLM, Quatar, Wizz Air and Virgin Atlantic.

The bag is very spacious and can carry plenty of travel essentials while still being within the limits of under seat cabin bag.

It has one large compartment for quick access to anything that maybe needed in-flight, such as books, headphones, snacks and electronic devices.

However, the bag is also fitted with a large pocket as well as different compartments to allow passengers to separate items.

It can be carried by hand, worn over the shoulder with the bigger strap, or mounted over the handle of a larger luggage item and used as a smaller personal bag.

The bag has received hundreds of four and five-star reviews, with more than one person describing it as a “perfect” travel bag.

One said: “Perfect for under seat on the plane, got plenty in with no extra costs from the airline.”

A second wrote: “Definitely worth the money, unbelievable how much I managed to get in the bag.”

A third added: “Perfect for those European city breaks. Easy to carry on the shoulder or by hand. Lightweight and meets regulations for under-the-seat cabin luggage.”

The Cuqoo 2022 cabin bag is available in eight different colours and designs, although some vary in price.

The bag is designed to take “as much as weight as physically possibly” without having the strap detach or the zip break.

Meanwhile, these are the airlines with the strictest hand luggage rules.

And this easyJet passenger left people in stitches as he tried to force his bag into the size checker.

I’m a travelling mum – all parents make the same mistake on flights

A MUM has revealed a big mistake that parents make when flying with their kids that will make travelling more stressful than it needs to be.

Flying with very young children is not a prospect most parents look forward to, but there are ways to make it a much more bearable experience for you, your kids and fellow passengers.

Alamy

Boarding first with kids is a big no-no, according to a travelling couple[/caption]

Vanessa and Kelvin Weir from New Zealand learnt some of these methods when they took their two kids travelling through Europe and say other parents shouldn’t be put off taking youngsters on long flights.

During their three-and-a-half-month trip, they visited the UK, France, Germany, Portugal, Italy, and travelled through Scandinavia, with their daughters Mackenzie, 3, and Cleo, 1, in tow.

From that, the main thing they swear by is boarding the plane last, even if you’re invited to board first as a family.

Vanessa told Stuff.co.nz: “The least amount of time in a small confined space the better.”

KID YOU NOT

Flight attendant reveals trick to get loud kids to quieten down on planes

KICKING OFF

I’m a flight attendant – here is what to do if kids are kicking your seat

Other parents have backed up the Weirs’ advice, saying that boarding the plane first with kids is always a big mistake.

Travel show host Samantha Brown has a lot of experience of plane journeys and in more recent years has started taking her young children on trips too.

In a recent video on Instagram, she revealed why it’s a good idea to get priority boarding seats when travelling with young children, but only board the plane at the last minute.

She said: “A lot of people like to pre-board with children under two- they think it’s great to get on the plane first. Here’s a better way to use the pre-board.

“Partner number one uses the pre-board to load all the stuff – all the bags and strollers – while partner number two waits in the gate area with the kids, keeps them worn out, walks them around and does not board until the very last zone is called.

“You walk your children on board, you get them settled and the plane leaves hopefully in 10 to 15 minutes.

“Think about this. If you use the pre-board, your child is sitting in the plane for a good 45 minutes more than the flight time. And this is a really stressful time for kids, right?

“There are bags going over their heads, people are really stressed and they can feel it.

“And what happens is once they get to a cruising altitude of 30,000 feet, that’s when the child releases the stress they just felt.

“So use the pre-board only to board stuff. Leave the kids until last.”

Elsewhere, a flight attendant has revealed which seats parents should choose when travelling with young children to make the trip as easy as possible.

Rebecca Love, who has worked for Virgin Atlantic for eight years, explained there are three places that are best for kids – the bulkhead, the window and near the toilets, depending on their age.

She told the Mirror: “If they’re little enough, try and get a bulkhead seat and request a bassinet (one of the cribs that attaches to the front wall of the cabin).”

Meanwhile, this passenger woke up on a flight to find a small child had scribbled all over her socks.

And these are the most child-friendly airlines available.

Disneyland Paris to cost more for Brits following overnight price hike for food, drinks and merchandise

HOLIDAYMAKERS to Disneyland Paris aren’t strangers to forking out for their food and drink, but guests staying at the resort woke to discover some very hefty price hikes.

According to the DLP Report, a Twitter Account dedicated to providing Disneyland Paris updates, the cost of food and drink prices rose across the park overnight.

The price of food and drink has risen at Disneyland Paris[/caption]

Dining at table service restaurants increased by 7 per cent to 12 per cent.

For example, at the popular character dining spot, Auberge de Cendrillon, prices rose by €16 (£13) per person with a meal setting back diners €95 (£82) a head.

Buffet prices were also hit with the Plaza Gardens, a restaurant decorated like a Victorian dining parlour, increasing meals by €7 (£6) per person from €38 (£32) to €45 (£38).

While other buffet restaurants like Downtown Cape Cod will cost a diner an extra €3 (£2.59) from €42 (£36) to €45 (£38).

The cheapest buffet option at La Cantina and Crockett now costs €35 (£30) – an increase of €1 (£0.86).

It’s believed that customers who’ve already purchased a meal plan will receive their vouchers as planned for the price they paid.

But guests can expect meal plans to increase by at least €1 (£0.86) from April 2023 with full board plans climbing by €11 (£9.51) per person per night.

Fizzy drink prices rose too from €3.80 (£3.29) to €4 (£3.46).

One Twitter one visitor said: “The no warning to people with reservations is to note, it was quite a surprise for many when showing up at Walt’s today.”

Another person wrote: “Guess I’m cancelling some reservations for my trip in 2 weeks.”

From March 2023, Disneyland Paris Guests wishing to use the Disney Express system, a service that transfers luggage directly to the hotel, will be charged an extra $3.

Meanwhile the price of souvenirs at other Disneyland parks has also increased with kids’ jumpers costing parents an extra $5 (£4.29) at $54.99 (£46.14).

The popular Loungefly Mini Backpacks have also gone up by $10 (£8.39) to a whopping $85 (£71.32).

The price hikes in food and drink comes just after Disney World upped its prices for the first time in three years, with tickets increasing by $3 (£2.50) to $15 (£12) per guest per day.

How I got a free holiday in a Budapest mansion after nightmare hostel stay – it’s so easy anyone can do it

A WOMAN who vowed never to holiday again after staying in a hostel with “no seat on the toilet” has since nabbed a free stay in a villa in Budapest.

Ellen Carter, 22, was studying for a degree in France when she decided to go travelling around Italy, Romania, Poland and Germany before a disastrous trip to Vienna, Austria.

Housesit Match

Ellen Carter vowed to never holiday again after a nightmare hostel stay[/caption]

She said: “I arrived in Vienna after midnight with two friends and we thought we were staying in a normal hostel but it was literally just a spare room in a random guy’s house.”

There was no lock on the bedroom door and the room only had a mattress on the floor where Ellen and her friends slept.

She continued: “The room smelled like mildew, there was no running water in the bathroom and no seat on the toilet.”

But the three friends didn’t have the budget to move elsewhere, and the trip ruined Ellen’s zest for travel.

She added: “I decided I didn’t want to put myself in that position again – but with the cost of living increasing so rapidly I knew that meant I wouldn’t be travelling for the foreseeable future.”

Despite her promise, when Ellen heard about Housesit Match, a global house and pet-sitting network, she secured herself and her boyfriend a 10-night stay in a 5-bedroom villa at no cost.

In exchange for her free accommodation, all Ellen had to do was walk the dog while she stayed at the Budapest mansion with a private garden and a swimming pool.

A 5-bedroom villa in Budapest can cost between £695 to over £1,000 per night.

She said: “It was much nicer than staying in a hostel and wondering if we had to escape at two in the morning.”

Another couple who are professional house and pet sitters in the UK save themselves £1,000 each month by living in other people’s homes for free.

After Claire Goodall and Michael Ashfield ditched the traditional nine to five they travelled the world before returning to the UK and making the most of the free stays.

Another couple Austin Andrews and Jori Kerr have used pet sitting service to fulfil their dreams of travelling the world and have since visited Germany, Gibraltar, Grenada, and the US.

The big mistakes tourists make when visiting London – and how to avoid them

LONDON is one of the most popular cities in the world for tourists, but a lot of them make big mistakes whenever they visit.

Going to the wrong restaurants, getting caught in tourist traps, or just not doing your research can limit visitors’ enjoyment of the English capital, and can also cost a lot too.

Alamy

Tourists often end up eating in expensive touristy places instead of finding really good authentic places[/caption]

But if you read up before you visit, you can learn a couple of local tricks that will help you fully enjoy London, without needlessly spending a load of money.

Fish & Chips

No trip to London is complete without a trip to a proper chippy to sample the UK’s finest dish, especially for foreign visitors.

However, there are some places in the more touristy areas of the city, where prices are high, but quality of food is not.

Read More on London

CITY SAVER

London’s hidden shopping gem loved by foreign tourists – it saved me hundreds

CAPITAL SAVING

The best cheap hotels in London on TripAdvisor in December– from £20.50pppn

It’s worth visiting a “local” chippy instead – somewhere slightly off the beaten track. As a rule, if the locals are happy to pay for it, so should you be. If not, go and find somewhere else.

Another error tourists make when not au-fait with the chippy tea is to only try the basic fish and chips, but not venturing into the array of condiments, sauces and sides that enhance the meal.

Saveloys, mushy peas and scampi to name a few, are all more than worth a try, alongside a host of other options.

Rickshaws

The number of rickshaws in the centre of London is increasing and are often used by tourists visiting for the first time.

The bicycle-driven carts, often draped in fairy lights and blaring tacky pop music can be found around Soho, as well as loitering near the parks during the summer music festival season.

A Mashable investigation into the issue found one company, London pedicabs, hired around “£5 for a short trip in Zone 1”.

But there have been countless stories about passengers being ripped off for very short journeys.

Two young tourists were once filmed in a fracas with a rickshaw driver who tried to charge them £150 for a half-mile journey.

Listening to the Vengaboys while weaving through the city is fun for a few seconds, but the novelty wears off very quickly and you’ll probably soon realise you’ve wasted your money.

Buses and Tubes

A lot of tourists are fond of the open-top bus tours that you find in almost every single city nowadays.

However, in a city famous for its double-decker buses, it seems a bit silly to pay the best part of £30 for a day ticket, when the public buses are capped at £4.95 per person per day.

Download an app like Citymapper, or even just use Google maps, and you can find out which buses pass the sites you want to see – it’s a much cheaper alternative.

Those apps are vitally important for using public transport anyway, with tourists often getting lost in the labyrinth of the underground.

Like bus tickets, tube tickets are also capped at £8.90 for passengers using Oyster Cards or contactless, but some tourists still buy individual tickets for each journey.

That way, the costs can really add up for people making the most of the underground to explore the city.

Theatre tickets

Buying theatre tickets in advance is a good idea if you’re aiming to see a specific show, on a specific day.

However, if you’re willing to be flexible, you can purchase on the day and save a small fortune.

Any return tickets go back on sale and can be picked up with a considerable discount, so theatre-lovers can see big shows, for small fees.

Restaurant queueing

Visitors will spend ages queuing for popular restaurants, when they really don’t need to.

The Dojo app allows people to queue virtually for a table, so they can do it from a pub or other attraction nearby, meaning they don’t have to waste time standing in line and can still get tables at the best places.

Free samples

One of the best places to visit for food in London is Borough Market, but with so much to choose from, tourists will often end up going home without trying everything there.

However, those who can’t decide what to eat don’t need to pay out for loads of dishes, or miss out on the great food.

Instead, you can ask for a sample – most of the stalls are willing to give one out, hoping customers will then pay for even more.

That way you can try a few things first, before making a decision on what to order.

Meanwhile, you can spend a weekend in London for less than £125pp.

And this tourist went viral after writing a review of London with Tesco among his favourite places to visit.

I’m an etiquette expert – here’s when you are in the wrong if you recline your seat during a flight

RECLINING seats on planes is a thorny subject for travellers, with some all for it and others dead against it.

However, there are ways to go about reclining your seat that can be more courteous to the people sitting around you.

If you’re courteous you can minimise how much you annoy other passengers when reclining[/caption]

Nobody wants to have the person in front of them whip the seat back really quickly, smashing the back of the chair into their knees.

While others appreciate a heads-up from the person in front before they choose to drop their seat back.

That’s why, in an article for the Points Guy, etiquette experts and passengers explained how to recline your seat while causing minimal annoyance to the person behind.

One of those, Julia Esteve Boyd, an etiquette coach and podcaster from Switzerland said: “It is completely reasonable to recline your seat if you want to.

Why you shouldn’t recline your plane seat to sleep according to experts

LEAN IN

Woman reveals how to win ‘seat recline war’ on flights after passenger fight

“Don’t recline the seat too quickly.”

This can make all the difference, which some people have found out the hard way.

One passenger was left fuming when his Apple MacBook Pro was destroyed during a flight – after the person in front reclined their seat too hastily.

Pat Cassidy was flying with Delta from Austin to Los Angeles when his computer was crushed by the seat going back onto it.

He wrote on Twitter: “@Delta small note for the suggestion box, maybe have a little warning sign or someway to prevent my laptop from being destroyed when the person in front of me reclines their seat.”

One person asked Pat: “Who are all these folk reclining instantly at maximum velocity?”

So not only will the person behind you think you’re a more courteous individual if you recline slowly, it could also be the difference between you having to buy someone a laptop.

Meanwhile, passenger Lisa Blossat Harrison said she always checks who’s behind her, before not reclining all the way.

She said: “I’ll look behind first, then gently go back a little just to relieve my back.”

This is backed up by frequent-flyer Ben Schlappig, who wrote in a blog post on One Mile at a Time: “If you are going to recline your seat, do so slowly, and make sure the person behind you knows. No matter what, don’t be a jerk.”

Reclining your seat all the way back might not only be uncomfortable for the person behind, but it could also cause problems for your back.

Andrew Lawrence, president of the Chiropractors Association of Australia, says the most conducive position for snoozing in economy is only “slightly reclined.”

Passengers should then put a cushion at the base of the spine to help maintain the lumbar curve and reduce pressure at the junction of lower back and pelvis.

He said: “The best position for reclining is about halfway, which gives assistance with holding the head in place but doesn’t put too much backward pressure on the hips.”

Meanwhile, you’ve been wearing your neck pillow all wrong – here’s how you should be wearing it.

And this six-foot-tall man divided opinion online when he kept trying to recline his seat.

Woman refuses to give up plane seat so couple can sit with their cat – but people are on her side

A WOMAN has revealed how she refused to switch seats on a plane to accommodate a couple with a cat.

The pair hadn’t booked an appropriate seat to fly with their pet, who needed to be placed underneath a seat in front.

Instead, the couple were sat at the front of the row and were therefore asked to move seats.

When the flight attendant offered the woman the chance to sit at the front, so the couple could sit together with their cat, she politely declined.

The 25-year-old woman explained this was due to her and her husband, 32, being disabled and tried and didn’t wish to move from the seats they had paid for.

However, she was adamant she was in the right and took to Reddit in search of support from others.

SWITCH IT UP

I’m a mum – how to get passengers to swap seats on flights without the drama

She wrote: “A couple boarded the plane with a cat in a carrier and sat in the first row.

“After a while, the flight attendant told them that they couldn’t have a pet in a carrier in the first row because there is no seat to put it under.

“She asked the couple if one could switch to a different seat with the cat, and the couple started to argue that they wanted to sit together.

“The flight attendant came and asked us to switch with them.

“I’m typically the most accommodating person, but the trip had taken literally everything out of me and I was so absolutely done. So I politely said no.”

The woman stood firm though and refused to budge, pointing out a spare seat behind the couple, saying they would have to split up because she wasn’t moving. And eventually, she was allowed to stay.

She continued: “There was a spare seat behind them and the couple could sit one behind the other or someone else could give up their seat, but I wouldn’t be moving from the seat I paid for.

“She continued to argue with me and tell me that I would have more room for my foot if I moved. I told her that I had plenty of room as I have short legs.

“Eventually, the woman next to the empty seat agreed to switch so the couple could sit together.

“As a people pleaser, the whole situation left me feeling bad. I hate not being accommodating. But it wasn’t my fault the airline allowed them to book the first row with a pet carrier, nor that they refused to split up.”

A lot of people stuck up for the woman in the comments, with some even saying she should complain to the airline.

One wrote: “I would file a complaint with the airline. Especially when physically disabled, the stewardess was our of line telling you that you had to move.”

A second added: “Good on you for standing up for yourself and don’t let a situation like this discourage you from standing up for yourself in the future!”

Some airline professionals insist that passengers shouldn’t change seats at all, claiming it is dangerous.

Pilot Magnar Nordal explained on a Quora forum: “If the [systems are] set wrong, then the aircraft may crash at take-off.

“Four passengers seated themselves forward from their assigned seats before take-off.

“My first officer was flying, and he experienced problems when he rotated the aircraft: It was very heavy.

“This was a very critical situation, because the runway was very short, and we would not have been able to stop.”

Pilot Darren Patterson agreed, telling the BBC that someone moving 10 rows of seats can have a “dramatic” effect on a plane’s balance.

Meanwhile, this man also refused to move seats despite a mother’s plea to sit next to her child.

The magic dates for booking Disney holidays that save on money and queue times

A HOLIDAY to Disneyland is incredibly exciting but also extremely expensive.

A travel expert has revealed the best budget-friendly dates to visit a Disneyland Park to save some money after Disney World upped its prices for the first time in three years.

Alamy

Cheaper tickets are available in January, early May and September[/caption]

Travel in the low months

According to Insider, travel agent Lauren King explained that Disney offers cheaper tickets during January, early May and September.

While these reduced tickets are also available in December, guests will need to travel before the Christmas festivities kick in.

Ordering food to your hotel

On average, a family of four can expect to spend $150 (£125) a day dining out at a Disneyland park, but there are ways to eat without racking up a hefty bill.

Independent travel agent Alison Pringle revealed that holidaymakers are able to order a food shop to their accommodation free-of-charge.

She also recommends bringing drinks and snacks into the park, grabbing food on the go from “quick-service restaurants”, and staying in a room with a kitchenette.

Purchase a package deal

Another travel agent, Shannon Devine, explained that by booking park tickets and a room in one go, with a Disney World Vacation package, could save a bob or two.

Over Christmas a one-room hotel for a three to five-person family for five nights costs $3,500 (£2919), these prices dip by around $1,000 (£834) outside of this period.

To save a couple of hundred dollars a night on accommodation, Alison Pringle recommends booking a value resort.

Other ways to save money including purchasing popular pieces of memorabilia, such as Minnie Mouse ears, before travelling, and using a Disney Visa card to obtain rewards and savings towards souvenirs and meals.

Kari Becker a Disney travel planner recommends buying discounted gift cards in bulk before your strip.

She said: “On our last trip, we saved over $300 (£266) just by buying discounted Disney gift cards.”

Meanwhile the Disney cruise is not only for kids – it has adult-only pools too.
