The video has drawn a split reaction on Twitter.


  • A passenger on a 2017 Lufthansa flight from Germany to New York posted a video of a child screaming, climbing on a seat, and running through the aisles to YouTube.
  • The video indicates the child was disruptive throughout the eight-hour flight.
  • Some viewers have sympathised with the child and his mother, while others have criticised them.

Sitting next to an upset child is every airline passenger's worst fear, but a YouTube video taken by a passenger on a Lufthansa flight from Germany to New York in August 2017 takes those fears to another level. 

The Daily Mail first reported the video, which shows a child yelling, climbing on a seat, and running through the aisles. The video indicates that the child was disruptive throughout the eight-hour flight.

"That was a nightmare — eight hours of screaming," a person can be heard saying at the end of the video. 

On Twitter, viewers gave a variety of responses to the video. Some sympathised with the child and his mother, arguing that the child may have a condition that would make air travel uncomfortable. 

"I have one of these at home. He drives me nuts. Nothing mom can do and I feel for her," user angelgrey81 wrote

Others criticised them.

"With parenting like this, that kid's destined to be President one day," Nash076 wrote.

Lufthansa did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Here's what Twitter users had to say about the video.
