A flight attendant has weighed in after a child kept an entire plane awake with a glow-in-the-dark hat. The incident occurred on a flight from Orlando to Philadelphia, and the video of the child’s hat went viral on TikTok.
The Hat Lit up the Plane
In a viral TikTok video posted by @malecastellonn, the camera captures passengers behind the videographer before turning it around to see the bright flashes everyone had to ensure from the child’s hat. You would be forgiven for thinking you were watching a video of a rave rather than a flight. Bright lights flash around the darkened plane and it looks like most people are relaxing while they fly, at least they are trying to relax.
The Parents Watched On
The video focuses on the child wearing a fluffy bunny hat with glow-in-the-dark ears that move when a string is pulled. The child’s parents simply look on as the whole plane looks at their child. In one shot, the dad looks terrified, with one person commenting, “Did you see the look on his face?”
It Was like a TV Show
Some Tiktokers could not believe what they were seeing, with one joking, “It is like an episode of Modern Family .”The innocent-looking child looks like she could not cause as much drama as she did. The video shows some people smiling, but could it have been one of those times when, if you don’t laugh, you will cry?
People Were Not Happy
It is safe to say people were not happy with the little girl’s hat, with one saying, “Imagine trying to sleep and all of a sudden the plane turns into a rave.” Another TikTok viewer said, “No joke, I would probably cry as that looks like a long flight.” Another admitted, “There are no noise-canceling headphones for that!”
The Family Was Inconsiderate
Lots of people responded to the post asking why the hat was allowed to remain lit up. One person said, “What if someone had seizures caused by the lights?”. Another commented, “This would trigger a migraine for me.” One witty person commented, “I was mortified when I accidentally turned on my overhead light last week on a 6 a.m. flight”. This comment indicates how sensitive many people are to other people who are flying alongside them.
There Was Some Acceptance
While some people said they would “lose their mind,” some others seemed somewhat accepting of the incident. One person said, “As a flight attendant, I’d say put that away. People are trying to rest, read, watch a movie, etc. Also, there are people with disabilities, and this can be incredibly annoying and irritating for them.”
Children Can Get Fidgety on Flights
It was later revealed that a flight attendant from the plane, who has not been identified, chimed in to say she understands that children can be excited and fidgety on planes but that the child’s hat was “excessive” and “disruptive.” She said she spoke to the child’s parents about the hat, and they agreed to turn it off.
The Internet Got into a Heated Debate
The flight attendant’s comments have sparked a debate online about the rights of children on planes and the responsibility of parents to keep their children from disrupting other passengers. Some people have said that the flight attendant was overreacting, while others have said that she was right to speak to the parents about the hat.
There Was Some Acceptance
While some people said they would “lose their mind,” some others seemed somewhat accepting of the incident. One person said, “This is why an eye mask on flights along with headphones and a neck pillow.” This person seemed to be saying it is to be expected for people to annoy you on flights, so you must be prepared as much as you can.
Calls for Child-Free Flights
There have been increasing calls for child-free flights in recent years. This is due to a number of factors, including the growing number of people who travel for business or pleasure, the increasing length of flights, and the fact that children can sometimes be noisy and disruptive.
Parents Cannot Be Discriminated Against
However, there are also a number of arguments against child-free flights. Some people believe that they are discriminatory and unfair to parents. They argue that parents should not be penalized for having children and that they should be able to travel with their families without being segregated.
Parents Are the Ones in Control
Ultimately, it is up to the parents to decide what is appropriate behavior for their children on planes. However, it is important to be mindful of the other passengers and to take steps to minimize disruptions. Taking activities, such as puzzles and books, will help, and sitting children by the window can keep them entertained on their journey.
