Malaysia Airlines bans babies from first class

WHEC

An international airline has banned infants from first class on its Boeing 747-400 jets. Malaysia Airlines' new rule comes after officials received several complaints from passengers, NBC affiliate WHEC-TV reports.

Travelers with babies will now have to book seats in business or economy class, which are equipped with bassinets.

Routes affected by the ban include long-haul flights from Kuala Lumpur to Amsterdam, London and Sydney.

In February, several airlines including British Airways and Virgin Atlantic were considering creating children-free flights.
