As many of 48% of parents with children aged 10 or under admitted they probably did not do their best to prevent their children being disruptive on flights, according to a survey.
The main reason for their not being more strict with offspring was that they were "on holiday" so were more likely to let their children do what they liked, the poll by travel agent sunshine.co.uk found.
More than half of holidaymakers would be prepared to pay more to go on child-free flights, according to a survey.
Those who would like to see adult-only planes include some with young children of their own, the poll by travel agent sunshine.co.uk found.
Of the 2,152 people surveyed, two thirds said they had experienced troublesome children on flights.
Asked if they would pay more if they could be guaranteed a child-free flight, 52% of those polled said yes.
Of those in favour of adult-only air travel, 23% had children under the age of 10 themselves.
Screaming babies, children running around and children complaining topped the list of things that aggravated adults the most when travelling on planes with youngsters.
Children being too loud and kicking seats also annoyed adults.
