AirAsia offers "child-free areas" in long-haul flights reports that on Wednesday, September 26, "the long-haul arm of Malaysia-based budget carrier AirAsia (AirAsia X) said that starting February 2013 it would ban young children (those under 12 years old) from sitting in the first seven rows of its economy-class section to create a ’quiet zone.’"


The report noted that according to the statement posted on the airline’s website, "the cost of choosing a seat in the quiet zone will be the same as the 35 ringgit ($11.35 or P475.62) charged for picking specific seats or the 110 ringgit (around $35.70 or P1,496) it costs to select a seat with extra legroom."
