Child-free flying? Canadian airline pulls an April Fool's prank

Feeling exhausted at just the thought of flying with children? Canadian airline WestJet proposed a humorous alternative in this April Fool's commercial. Instead of worrying about tantrums that might get you thrown off the plane, WestJet jokingly offered child-free cabins.

The catch? Kids will be checked and stowed as cargo on the plane.

"Your child will be whisked away in a magic carpet ride and your work is done," said Richard Bartrem, the airline's vice president of communications.
