A Turkish-Dutch airline aims to limit the disruption of children's noises

MICHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Michel Martin. You know that sad feeling you get when you realize there's a newborn crying on your long flight or an antsy toddler kicking the back of your seat? Well, Corendon Airlines will soon have an only-adult section of the plane on the 10-hour flight from Amsterdam to Curacao. You have to be 16 or older to sit there, and it's about 50 bucks more. Parents who want a break can also book these seats. OK, but where is the section to get away from annoying adults? Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
