South Koreans find parents failing to calm wailing infants the most annoying thing they experience during flights, according to a local budget airline’s survey on Monday.

Four out of 10 passengers on domestic flights cited parents failing to control bawling babies the biggest in-flight irritation, a poll of 699 cabin crew members and customers conducted by Korea’s leading low-cost carrier Jeju Air showed, according to Pulse.

Kicking seats and annoying the person in front came second at 33.3%, followed by picking a fight and causing a disturbance at 30.7%, bad behaviour after drinking alcohol at 25.5%, and reclining the seat too much at 21.7%. 

Cabin crew considered picking a fight and causing a disturbance the most ill-mannered behaviour (38.7%), followed by letting babies or kids cry (26.7%), drinking too much alcohol (18%), smoking on board (9.9%) and speaking loudly (6.7%). 

Jeju Air has recently initiated a “Happy Flight” campaign to reduce the prevalence of in-flight disturbances, smoking and heavy drinking.
