George Clooney, please don’t apologize for flying with your infants

While the Clooneys’ random act of aviation kindness was thoughtful, it reinforced a dangerous trend, Christopher Muther says. –Jordan Strauss/Invision/Associated Press/File 2017

Oscar winner, entrepreneur, and all-around good guy George Clooney and his whip-smart barrister wife, Amal, just set the bar impossibly high for parents flying with babies and toddlers.

The Clooneys gave their fellow passengers on a flight to London noise-canceling headphones (wireless and worth a reported $350), accompanied by a note: “Our twins just discovered squawking!! Hope this helps make the flight a little quieter.’’

Because the famously attractive couple’s twins, Alexander and Ella, are probably a pair of angels — they are Clooneys after all — they didn’t make a peep on the flight. At least that’s what fellow passenger Quentin Tarantino said. (Although the headphones weren’t needed to drown out babies’ cries, they might have helped drown out Tarantino’s stream of consciousness chatter.)
