(Newser) – Are you sick of crying infants making air travel a nightmare? Well, apparently so is Malaysia Airlines, which is risking the wrath of parents everywhere by banning babies from its first-class cabins. The decision was made due to "many complaints from 1st class pax dat dey spend money on 1st class & can't sleep due to crying infants" [sic], said the airline's CEO in a Twitter post.

The ban is already under way in the airline's Boeing 747s, and its new Airbus A380 super jumbos will not even have baby bassinets installed in the first class section. Infants will still be allowed in economy and business class, the Daily Mail reports.
