A furious debate has broken out over whether children should be allowed in airport lounges after one passenger detailed a very difficult experience.

in a publication titled ‘Children in the (Delta) Sky Club…’, a Reddit user explained that ‘in general’ they have no problem with children in the VIP rooms.

But on a recent trip to La Guardia Airport in New York, they were unimpressed by the behavior of some children and decided to vent their frustrations.

In response to the experience, they wrote: ‘If your kids are going to run around like lost souls, get in the way, weave in and out of food lines and put their little paws all over everything, scream and sing, could you please just… Take them to any of LGA’s other great new restaurants?

“When I can hear your child from the opposite side of the room, you’re not doing it right.”

The Reddit post quickly gained traction, with more than 200 comments in 24 hours.

Many commenters agreed with the original poster and noted that it is the responsibility of the parent or guardian to keep their children under control.

One of them, who is a grandfather, wrote: ‘My grandchildren travel with me regularly and behave well because they understand that their behavior reflects directly on me.

‘The whole problem is that parents (adults) are not parents.

‘It’s no different in the Sky Club (lounge) or on board, than going to a local restaurant and not being able to enjoy a meal because a child misbehaves, causes a disturbance and the parents don’t correct the problem. misbehavior. “We’ve probably all experienced that situation.”

Another commenter with three children revealed how they take their children to airport lounges, but have strategies to ensure their children do not affect other travelers.

They explained: ‘We bring our three children (aged 7, 6 and 3) to the salon all the time. tThey have been accompanying us since we started traveling with them (when our oldest was just under a year old).

‘We are the family that does everything possible to find the quietest corner. Our kids wear headphones and always eat with an adult… I never understood why some parents let their kids go crazy. We are all tired.

‘Children can be unpredictable and are allowed to take up space. HOWEVER, there is a standard of behavior in a “luxury” environment. And yes, we have had to take “shifts” to take our children from one side of the terminal to the other during the longer layovers.’

And one Reddit user spoke out in favor of parents with children using airport lounges, writing: ‘You should use the bloody Sky Club, for God’s sake.

“Being a parent is hard enough, don’t put obstacles in your way by denying yourself resources to which you are entitled.”

However, one commenter bucked the trend, saying the salons are not kid-friendly.

They opined: ‘I often wonder why parents take their children to places clearly designed for adults that have virtually nothing to offer their children. Isn’t the simplest solution to completely restrict children?

‘It would be different if Delta had a children’s area with toys and a children’s menu, like a glorious family waiting room. You know, like in doors. Then I just wouldn’t bother in the salon. But they sell it to us as a premium experience.”

And in the same camp, another wrote: “I especially hate it when they let their kids watch movies at full volume on an iPad without headphones.” NO ONE WANTS TO HEAR THAT!!’

Like most airport lounges, Delta Sky Club is open to travelers of all ages, but those under 18 must be accompanied by a “responsible adult and supervisor.”
