Japan Airlines has introduced a tool on its website that allows passengers to see where babies will be sitting when booking their flights.

According to airlines-telling-passengers-if-seat-near-baby-t163402″ target=”_self” rel=”nofollow noopener noreferrer”>The Today Show, when travelers book seats for children between eight days old and two years old through the official website of Japan Airlines, a child icon will appear on the seat selection screen to show other passengers where they will be sitting.

While the new technology will work when families book their travel through the carrier’s website, the child icon will not appear if the airline has to change the aircraft for the flight or the booking is made through a secondary site.

Many social media users applauded the change due to the frustration associated with traveling alongside a crying baby, but others were more understanding of the struggles for parents who are flying with small children.

To help accommodate passengers flying with small children, Japan Airlines also offers other services to improve the experience, including priority boarding, diaper-changing facilities and even the inclusion of strollers as free checked baggage.

“It was very frightening for this to unfold in mid-air,” one witness said. “It was a violent confrontation and an area of the cabin was covered in blood. The cabin crew did a great job to try to contain it. But some were reduced to tears because of what unfolded.”

The flight landed in Edinburgh, Scotland from Copenhagen at around 1:30 in the afternoon, where the two men were quickly detained by police.

A spokesman for the airline said “We can confirm that flight EZY6980 from Copenhagen to Edinburgh was met by police on arrival as a result of two passengers on board behaving disruptively.

“EasyJet’s cabin crew are trained to assess and evaluate all situations and to act quickly and appropriately to ensure that the safety of the flight and other passengers is not compromised at any time.

The spokesman added, “The safety and wellbeing of customers and crew is our highest priority.”

It is unclear at this time what had prompted the fight. According to a spokesman for the Scotland Police, the two men, aged 28 and 42, are charged for breach of the peace.

“A report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal,” the spokesman said.
