ITV’s This Morning presenter Eamon Holmes has set the Twitter a buzz today following comments that child-free travel should be available.



Talking on the morning show, the 56-year-old said that airlines should provide the option of child-free flights, saying: “I paid for the ticket, why not?”


The father-of-four said that he just wants the choice and doesn’t mean he wants kids to be sent off the airplane!


Eamonn's comments come after guest Martin Daubney said that we should be more tolerant because flying with kids is made more stressful by “disapproving grumpsters” who just make life miserable for parents. 


“What makes life miserable is that I’ve paid for my holiday – I’ve got one week off all year. I just want to get on that plane and watching my movie, or sleep or whatever it happens to be. I just want the choice,” explained Eamonn.


Not surprisingly, his comments made Twitter light up with some agreeing with the presenter while others were disgusted he would even suggest it.










What do you think? Should child-free flights be made an option?
