It's hell on earth - or at least in the sky.

Yes, we're referring to those interminable flights blighted by the constant screaming of a baby or child.

Well one budget airline is offering the option of upgrading your seat to a child-free cabin - for the extraordinarily reasonable cost of just £9, the Telegraph reports.

That £9 will guarantee you a spot in rows 21-25, which are devoid of anyone under the age of 12 - plus more legroom on Singapore-based Scoot Airlines, which primarily flies to Sydney and Australia's Gold Coast.

"No offence to our young guests or those travelling with them - you will still have the rest of the aircraft," airline CEO Campbell Wilson told The Australian.

Malaysia Airlines started the trend in 2011 when it banned infants from first class and then designated a no-kids zone in economy class last year.
