Here we have it: the answer to many ideas posted here and discussed elsewhere. There will be about a dozen or so seats sectioned off on the airplane. The seats will be brightly colored. The food trays will be a flat peice of lego. There will be a screen where a Disney (or the like) movie will be played. The audio for the movie will be heard at individual headphones on the seats. There will be (upon request) coloring books and crayons--and a little bag of assorted lego peices to play with on your food tray. Drinks will be served in spill-proof bottles along with your cookie of choice. For longer flights meals of a sandwich & chips of choice will be served. Of course these seats will cost a little more and will be first come first serve. But the parents will more than likely pay to put their kids in the Kids Room for a little peace and quite. There will be a minimun age of 5 to be able to have a seat in the Kids Room with your name on it. So pack your bags....because this is a flight that both parent and child can now enjoy!!

       //But the parents will more than likely pay to ...// I somewhat doubt that. Usually the expectation is that kids stuff is cheaper. But since it is all for kids they can make the seats shorter and narrower. Kids cannot reach overhead luggage compartments anyway and they don't need as much headroom, so there is room for a second layer, bunkseats with nets to climb up? The airline could offer kids seats cheaper because they take less space.   

       Hey Google knows bunkbeds but no bunkseats, consider it trademarked.

       I’ve found a cure for “are we there yet”
And it works better than a death threat
Though to my shame I must admit
It’s not a game of subtle wit
No – it’s a portable TV set
Inside the headrest of each seat

       Is there a maximum age? If not, then I want to sit in the lego room every time.   

       Alternately, (for those parents who wouldn't like me sitting with their kids) can I get the lego tray put into a regular seat?

       [reap] i purposely did not put a maximum age bc i figured then some paranoid parents could sit back there with their kid or older "kids" could sit back there. but putting the lego tray on your regular tray would be up to the airline.

       A bun for you for correct use of the term LEGO.

       Ballpit is good, could replace safety belts. "This is your captain speaking, there is some rough weather ahead. Adults please fasten seatbelts! Kids please dive into the ballpit!"

       "It looks like that last bit of turbulance lost us an engine. Prepare for a water landing. Adults, you will find a life preserver under you seats. Kids, under your seats are a set of arm floaties and an inflatible ring with a duckie head."

       The flight attendent can be in a kangaroo costume, I guess?
Letsbuildafort, Jan 09 2004
  

       i would hate to be the flight attendant then....unless there was a crash...then the extra padding would be nice.

       Funnily enough [Rods], when I read it my mouse was obscuring one of the "o"s - imagine how disappointed I was to find this idea has nothing to do with implanting memory chips in young goats.

       KEY REQUIREMENT: The room is soundproofed from the rest of the cabin.   

       First/Business should have this as standard for all those inconsiderate families who bring their badly behaved squirming noisy spawn into an environment where people specificaly pay for quiet, calm and solitude.
