Flying is stressful. People worry about getting to the airport on time, security checks, airplane delays or the dreaded plane cancellation.

After handling the ordeal, boarding the plane should be stress-free. However, by the time your eyes close to relax, you hear a crying baby or maybe you’ve got a toddler that keeps kicking your seat.

If that is the final straw for you, then an alternative might be in the works. Turkish-based Corendon airlines will soon offer an “adult zone” on one of their flight routes.

Airplane passengers can pay an additional $48 per ticket for separate seating away from passengers ages 16 and under. While there is no confirmation of implementing age-based separate seating for U.S. based flights, WINK posted a poll on X (formerly known as Twitter) about their opinions regarding “child-free” airplane seating.

Around 286 votes were cast. Nearly two-thirds of people said no to paying extra for “child-free” seating.
