One TikToker has spoken out about what it was like when he took a trip from New Zealand to Berlin, Germany with a screaming baby on board the flight.

And the video has gone viral and left the internet divided, with many believing the footage is a sign we should offer child-free flights.

The distressing video amassed 14.5 million views and 2.8 million likes, with many taking to the comment section to share their views on the controversial topic.

One TikTok user says: “Honestly there should be kid-free flights and kid flights.”

A second adds: “The rage I get just by watching this.”

Another says: “I’ve stopped counting the reasons why I don’t want kids but this one is definitely on the list.”

And a fourth adds: “I don’t pay for a flight to listen to kids screaming.”

Another TikTok user writes: “I know some people don’t have the option, but I never took my babies or toddlers on flights. Ever. It’s painful for everyone.”

One person quips: “Oh lord, it’s the eye twitch for me. Thank god you’re okay,” while another agrees: “29 hours of that? sounds like the kid is having a medical emergency.”

However, others were on the side of the parents.

A user writes: “It’s called noise cancelling headphones. Get some.”

“Put your headphones on and be grateful that it isn’t you,” another agrees.

And a third comments: “Why didn’t anyone try to help the mom I understand it’s so bad but maybe Mom should have also tried something different but please people help this.”

Another adds: “The flight attendant should [intervene] and ask the parents to control their kid, the other passengers are paying to have good flight, it’s unfair.”

Henry Beasley – a musician in a band called Balu Brigada – took to his band’s TikTok account to share the horrific video that’ll have you hitting mute with haste!

In a TikTok video posted on his band’s account, he said: “Rate my 29-hour flight to Berlin. The kid’s got some lungs. Great projection.”

The constant screams continue throughout the video, with Beasley making a joke of it, and rating the scream.

He even captures a ‘nice long one’ on camera.

He finished the video by saying: “Stellar performance, incredible stamina. 10/10.”
