Malaysia Airlines A380: Infant and Child Free Zone

Rendering of the Malaysia Airlines A380.
Malaysia Airlines has made a controversial announcement that the economy section on the upper deck of their forthcoming A380 super jumbo jet will be a kids-free zone. Last year the airline announced it will not accept infants in the plane's first class cabins.

The upper deck economy cabin hold 70 passengers. Also on the upper deck is business class and it is yet unclear if any infants or children will be allowed to fly in the part of the plan. If the same rules apply to business, then all infants will be only be allowed on the lower deck.  The airline's A380 is scheduled to make its debut on July 1st.

It's heated debate between parents who travel with their children and others who seek a respite on the plane away from any young ones. The airline already bans infants from the first class of their 747 jumbo jets.
