Parent was slapped for making the girl jump on the tray in flight

A passenger was stunned after parents let their children loose on a long-haul flight.

In a video posted to Reddit, it was captioned, “Letting kids run wild on an 8-hour flight.”

It’s not clear where the passenger was traveling to or from, but they filmed some of the bad behaviour, The Sun reports.

In the video, a child was caught jumping up and down on the extended tray table with bare feet.

The passenger in front is then thrown back and forth by her jump.

Thousands of people have commented on the video, with many left stunned by the child’s act.

Someone wrote, “I’d feel like a failed parent if my kids did this and I just allowed it.”

Another agreed: “My only child is a tornado and NO F****** WAY would I allow her to act like that in public let alone on a flight.”

One person who said they were a frequent flyer gave his own advice.

He said, “Just ask politely. Other than that, don’t go in, call the flight attendant.

“They’ll ask them to stop, and if they refuse, they’ll usually move you to an upgraded seat, if available.”

A flight attendant also chimed in, saying: “A trick we always tried first when I was one [flight attendant] was to ask the captain to put on the fasten seatbelt sign and announce that everyone MUST be in their seat IMMEDIATELY with their seatbelt fastened.”

Another traveler recently shared his experience after a child screamed for the entire 29-hour flight.
