Stephen: Japan Airlines introducing map so you can avoid sitting next to babies

Japan Airlines wants to help passengers avoid sitting next to screaming kids. CNN reports that the company has launched an online seat map that lets customers see where in the plane babies are booked to fly. “Passengers traveling with children between 8 days and 2 years old who select their seats on the JAL website will have a child icon displayed on their seats on the seat selection screen,” the airline explains on its website. “This lets other passengers know a child may be sitting there.” Not surprisingly, fliers are praising the move. “Thank you, @JAL_Official_jp for warning me about where babies plan to scream and yell during a 13-hour trip,” one fan tweeted. “This really ought to be mandatory across the board.”
