Unfortunately, it's not possible to book a child-free flight. Research by airfarewatchdog.com indicates that many would, however, be in favour of them.
The survey asked 10,000 people if they would be in favour of child-free flights, or having sections of the aircraft designated as child-free. In total, 85% of respondents indicated that they would like to see a flight that had restrictions placed upon children. It remains to be seen if this will become a reality on flights.
