“Keeping in mind the comfort and convenience of all passengers, row numbers 1 to 4 and 11 to 14 are generally kept as a Quiet Zone on IndiGo flights,” the budget airline said in a statement to travel news site Traveller.com. It has yet to respond to Daily News requests for comment. “These zones have been created for business travelers who prefer to use the quiet time to do their work.”

Honestly there is nothing worse than a screaming kid on a long plane ride.

I think if the airline can make sure there are equal seats for people with kids, I don't see the big issue with this. You should be able to ride the plan and not be interrupted by a screaming kid.

This is sure to cause a stir but I for one like the idea of certain rows or sections on a plane being child-free. If you're traveling for business and have work to do then it would make sense. If I have to fly a red-eye then you bet I'll be sitting in the child-free zone. Why would anyone be offended by this?

I have the same take on this and I have 5 kids. Sometimes when I am traveling and leaving the kids the last thing I want to happen is to be stuck next to someone and their kid. That would run me crazy and my vacation would be ruined.

Traveling with kids on an airplane always seems to stir controversy into the proverbial pot. While I get it–no one wants to hear a baby crying on your six hour flight–this is just the nature of schlepping your mini-humans around. Parents can’t help it. Are they never supposed to travel with their kids? Are kids just not allowed to leave their designated zones?

I love to travel with my kids but I try to keep them as quiet as possible because I know alot of people do not have kids and do not want to see my kids acting crazy for 3 hours. I also would like to opportunity to travel and not have to see kids also. Sounds like a great idea and yes they should have to stay in a designated area or have a flight that does not allow kids altogether.

I hate flying on a plane with screaming kids. I think this is a great idea.

Great for business people on long hauls. Nothing worse than a screaming kid when you are on a limited schedule and need to rest.
