wow...a bit extreme on the captains part. sheesh!


as for whether or not they shoudl be allowed to show PG -13 movies in air planes, i say yes. they should. Most of the passengers are adults. The point is to give them something to do on long plane rides. Do you think they'd be happy watching Finding Nemo? No. (well, i would. but thats a different story). I guess what i'm saying is, they're trying to please the majority. I brought Trey a little portable DVD player on our flight to California and he sat and watched it with little headphone on and paid no attention to what was playing on teh big screen up front. If he got bored, he played games on my phone, etc. I guess i just figured that if kids are flying, theyre well equiped with things to keep their attention in their seats.

PLUS...because i'm only 5'3 (on a good day) i had a very hard time seeing the screen from my seat. So i doubt my kids were even able to physically see it.

Yeah, I think that was an extreme reaction.

And I guess I have mixed feelings about it...we don't let Grace watch stuff like that, and if it was playing, she would be watching. So...I wouldn't really like it. On the other hand, I can see how they're trying to please the majority, and I guess parents should plan ahead and have other forms of entertainment ready for distraction purposes.

Yeah the captain needs to calm down.....

I would prefer if they were G rated movies...i mean it doesnt have to be a disney movie - there are many fun family movies that would be appropriate. However, it wouldn't really bother me if they played PG13 movies...it kinda depends on my kids' age too. If they were babies or toddlers, chances are, they won't be able to see the screens or really understand much of what's going on in the movie. If I had a 12 year old though and the movie played sex scenes and violence...it might bother me a little but I'm sure I can distract my child with other things like his/her own electronics/games, etc. Same for babies/toddlers...you should bring them their own toys or gear to stay distracted during the flight. I would never rely on the airplane screens to do that...
