There’s a love-hate relationship with flying.

1. Crying and wailing kids. Though you understand that most of the time they can’t help it, sometimes you wonder if it is all done on purpose. How else do you explain their ability to sleep throughout take off and landing and wail only during the remaining 12 hours that the plane is flying without turbulence.
