cAir - redefining air travel for families from RKS Design on Vimeo.

If you'v'e traveled with children, you understand the stress of boarding a flight, keeping them occupied for hours, and the stares you'll receive from other passengers if little Bobby kicks the seat in front of him one too many times. How about an airline with special children menus, lavatories large enough for diaper-changing, and privacy curtains? Yeah, right.

Well, actually, according to Fox News, "California-based design consultancy RKS recently unveiled cAir, its concept for an airline that caters to overwhelmed parents and bored, fussy kids. As is, cAir would offer services like an on-board rent-a-toy service, pull-down soundproof compartments and seating that allows family members to face each other."

Watch the above video to get a sense of the concept. As the father of two children, I can only assure you that it looks like heaven.
