Flight attendant reveals these 30p animal masks are the best way to keep kids quiet on a flight – The Sun
A FLIGHT attendant has revealed the best way to keep babies and kids quiet during long flights is to pack animal masks.
Even better, they cost as little as 30p per mask, and can easily be packed in your hand luggage.
Simon Marton, a former British Airways flight attendant, has shared his stories in his book Journey Of A Reluctant Air Steward.
He explained how he would always packs animal masks for when young travellers act up during a long flight.
He says in his book, according to the Mail Online that "every crew should have one" as they distract kids who are being disruptive.
We found some animal masks on Amazon which include tigers and monkeys, with a pack of 8 for just £2.29.
This works out to just 30p per mask, making it a cheap option for frazzled parents travelling with little ones.
Even better, the paper masks take up very little room in your hand luggage.
Other flight attendants have shared their top tips on crying babies, such as telling them off themselves to telling parents to book the bulkhead seats.
Simon adds in his book that keeping passengers calm and happy is all to do about 'Passenger Psychology', a chapter in his book.
He said all it takes is a "smiling face" and it can calm even the rowdiest of passengers down.
Passengers who want to avoid kids altogether can choose seats as far away as possible, as one airline launches 'baby-booked' seat feature.
Parents have praised a £45 "flight hammock" which helps kids sleep during a flight by turning a seat into a bed.
One mum uses a £2 dog bed which she converted into a bed for a long-haul flight.
