A FLIGHT attendant has revealed the clever way to get loud kids to be quiet on the plane.

Noisy children on flights can make long journey's a real ordeal – but there is something you can do if you're near a screaming child or they are kicking the back of your seat.

You'll have to be brave as it means telling the kids off yourself.

An anonymous member of cabin crew previously told Travel and Leisure: "It is much [more] real for a child when they are addressed by a stranger."

If you’re bold enough to bypass their mum and dad and go straight to the child, you might just find some peace and quiet.

The flight attendant says that you are then within your rights to then speak to cabin crew if the child doesn’t quieten down – or indeed if their parents disagree with you.

They may be able to help with distractions for the child in the form of activities – which planes are normally stocked with.
