Traveling with Kids? Plane Partition Block Lewd Films

An Israeli organization called the Committee for Families is distributing special partitions for airline travelers with small children. The group said they received complaints from Israeli travelers who object to some of the films shown on movies. Rather than try and force the airlines to change their in-flight movies or have parental filters installed in personal screens, they have opted for personal dividers. "The main difficulty is flights to Europe because of the large screens installed in most aircraft, but also flights to the U.S. which have personal screens [in seats]," the organizations told Arutz Sheva news. They have so far distributed 1,000 partitions. The group says that lewd images on some movies has been disturbing for those traveling with small children and to those who wish to maintain a modest lifestyle.
