I would have had no problem on this flight. Sleep mask, noise cancelling headphones with 3hr mix on repeat, and neck ring. I wouldn't hear or even see him for more than a few seconds. I've taken flights with screaming children and woken up landing with a cabin full of people who have been driven insane. If you get on a plane unprepared for demon children, the fault is all yours because more often than not, there are screamin children whose parents just let run amok. Have to give that kid credit for being demon child for 8 solid hours and the mother who had to look everyone's sour face getting off the plane.
Before the flight takes off, the child’s mum can be heard desperately asking the flight attendant to “get the WiFi going so we can get the iPad going”. But instead of settling down for the flight, the little boy begins his disruptive behaviour which was to torture the passengers on board for eight agonising hours. As well as using the seats as a climbing frame, he allegedly ran about the plane which was flying from Germany to Newark, New Jersey. The video was uploaded to YouTube by Shane Townley, who captioned it “demonic child screams and runs through an 8 hour flight”.
“Three years old on a 8 hour flight from Germany to Newark NJ. He never quits!” His video also captures the pained expressions of other passengers who struggle to block out the child’s behaviour by covering their ears.
After the plane has landed, one passenger can be heard moaning: “What a nightmare, oh my God – eight hours of screaming.”
