The passenger in front is then jolted back and forward by her jumping.

Thousands of people have commented on the video, with many stunned by the child’s act.

One person wrote: “I would feel like a failed parent if my kids were doing this and I was just straight up allowing it.”

Another agreed: “My only kid is a tornado and NO F****** WAY would I allow her to behave this way in public, let alone on a flight.”

One person who said they were a frequent flyer gave his own advice.

He said: “Ask politely once. Beyond that, don’t engage, call over the flight attendant.

“They will ask them to stop, and if they refuse they’ll usually move you to an upgraded seat if available.

A flight attendant also chimed in, saying: “One trick we always tried first when I was an [flight attendant] was to ask the captain to put on the fasten seat belt sign, and make an announcement that everyone MUST be in their seats with their seat belt fastened IMMEDIATELY.”

A different traveller recently shared his experience after a child screamed for the entire 29-hour flight.
