Preparing for Takeoff: Carter’s Announces Airplane Apology Agreement to Help Families with Fussy Flyers

The trusted baby brand offers cash for parents to help build goodwill with judgmental passengers

Carter’s, Inc. (NYSE: CRI), the largest branded marketer in North America of apparel exclusively for babies and young children, is introducing the Airplane Apology Agreement, a contract and cash package that parents can pass out on their next flight to help avoid judgmental looks, side-eye, or snarky comments from fellow travelers. Carter’s knows flying with children can be overwhelming so this travel season Carter’s is handling the apologies directly and allowing parents to fly stress free.

Meltdowns and mishaps are inevitable with little ones on an airplane and Carter’s doesn’t believe parents should have to say “I’m sorry” to surrounding seat mates. While some parents give away candy, earplugs or other goodies to make nice with surrounding travelers, Carter’s is making it easier to win over friends in flight by equipping traveling parents with a little petty cash to pacify fellow passengers. With the acceptance of the Airplane Apology Agreement, neighboring travelers agree to allow Carter’s to rent their patience for a few hours on behalf of parents and assume the risk of potential annoyance by tiny frequent flyers.

“Cries in the sky and midflight meltdowns are the norm when traveling with kids. At Carter’s, we want to help parents by ensuring they become the most popular passenger on the plane,” said Jeff Jenkins, Executive Vice President of Global Marketing at Carter’s. “Carter’s Airplane Apology Agreement helps parents on their next trip by taking the stress off them and letting Carter’s provide relief from their potentially judgy seatmates.”

Beginning today, April 11, through April 17, families can enter for a chance to win. Five families will win a bundle that includes an Airplane Apology Agreement and 15 envelopes each containing $100 cash cards for parents to pass out to neighboring passengers – plus a bonus bodysuit for baby to wear on the plane.
