Malaysia Airlines to ban babies travelling in first class
MALAYSIA Airlines is to ban babies travelling in first class on the airline's new Airbus A380 and Boeing 747-400 fleet. The airline said they have introduced the baby ban after receiving a number of complaints about crying infants from first class passengers, the Australia Business Traveller reports.
The airline has decided not to install bassinets in the first class cabin of its Boeing 747-400 fleet. Those wishing to travel with babies will have to book bassinets in business or economy sections instead.
Malaysia Airlines CEO Tengku Azmil told the Australia Business Traveller first-class passengers complained about spending a lot of money and not being able to sleep “due to crying infants". The airline’s 747-400s fly between Kuala Lumpur and Sydney, as well as KL-London and KL-Amsterdam, with the Airbus A380s due to take over those routes next year.
Malaysia Airlines are expected to take delivery of its first A380 in June 2012, according to the Malaysian news agency Bernama
