Balu Brigada band member from New Zealand requested that his “29-hour flight to Berlin” be “rated” by the audience. In the first video that was uploaded to the website, the passenger’s face was in focus as the camera recorded the baby’s cries in the background.

The remaining portions of the video featured a selection of various events that occurred over the course of the journey. Beasley remarked at the beginning of the clip that the infant was off to a “strong start” and expressed his response to the loud screaming.

Parents also agreed that small children shouldn’t travel on lengthy flights; one person wrote: “I know some families don’t have the option, but I never brought my babies or toddlers on flights.  Everyone understands the pain. However, some commenters supported parents travelling with young children, stating that the experience is definitely more difficult for them.

One person said, “I feel awful for the passengers, but I also can’t imagine being ‘that parent’! The strain would be ridiculous.
