On a 29-hour trip from New Zealand to Germany, a passenger captured the baby’s constant cries on video.
Henry Beasley, an unfortunate passenger, also recorded his own declining mood as the piercing screams rang out for what seemed to be the whole of the 11,000-mile voyage.
The musician from the band Balu Brigada, who was seated a few seats in front of the infant, seemed to be handling it rather well.
He urged viewers to “rate my 29-hour journey to Berlin” in a video that was uploaded to his band’s TikTok account. Strong start,’ he thought, not realizing the breadth and depth of the suffering he was going to experience.
“The child has good lungs.” Great projection, combined with close-ups of his own worn-out face, are included in his writing.
As he frantically chews gum, the never-ending screams can be heard in the distance, and an unsightly tick starts to appear in his left eye.
In an attempt to keep himself sane, he even notes particular screams and ranks them with the comment, “great long one here, 100.”
“Outstanding performance; amazing endurance. With the airplane in complete darkness and his patience worn thin, he closed the film with “10/10.”
Social media users who saw the video were split between being outraged by the baby’s cries and being empathetic to the parents.
I’ve already done that. We don’t find it amusing either,” a parent wrote.
I’m relieved no one recorded my child’s screams, however.
Another person said, “You think we appreciate hearing our children cry while others around are forced to listen to it? Definitely not.
A user who seemed to be childless said, “The hatred I feel simply by seeing this,” in the meanwhile.
According to one user, flights should be divided into those with and without children.
Another person concurred, saying, “It should be termed trips with individuals who chose not to have kids for their own serenity.”
It is unknown which portion of the journey Beasley had to suffer the screaming, or whether it was both, since flights between New Zealand and Germany must make at least one stop.
Child-free flights are becoming in demand, with some passengers saying they would be ready to pay extra for the opportunity.
One-third of Britons stated they would pay more in a TripAdvisor survey from 2012 if it meant that there would be no children on the aircraft.
Additionally, 22% of the respondents reported that their pet dislike on airplanes was a kid kicking the back of their seat.
