Last Updated: 96 days ago
The United Arab Emirates-based airline Etihad Airways is launching a "Flying Nannies" program to help families traveling with children.
The airline said it will put 500 nannies aboard flights to help handle traveling children.
Hundreds of crewmembers have already received training, which includes learning about child psychology and sociology, in the past two months.
Some say that the new service could be a "game-changer" for the airline industry.
"It's just a really smart idea and especially if you're going to have a parent who has more than one child," Eileen Ogintz, a columnist who writes about traveling with kids, told ABC News.
