As spring break approaches, the excitement for a much-needed vacation builds up. However, if you’re traveling with fussy little ones, the idea of a long flight can quickly turn into a nightmare. Meltdowns and mishaps are bound to happen, and while parents have long since pleaded for patience from their fellow passengers, the judgy looks and snarky comments inevitably crop up.

While some parents try to win over their fellow travelers with candy or earplugs, trusted baby apparel brand Carter’s is taking things up a notch with their new Airplane Apology Agreement. The clever contract and cash package is designed to be passed out by parents to their neighboring passengers on their next flight to help avoid any potential annoyance caused by their tiny frequent flyers.

Carter’s emphasizes parents shouldn’t have to say “I’m sorry” to surrounding seatmates but hopes a little extra cash can go a long way in buying some patience. With the acceptance of the Airplane Apology Agreement, neighboring travelers agree to let Carter’s rent their patience for $100 and assume the risk of potential annoyance by the little ones.

“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. 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,” Jeff Jenkins, Executive Vice President of Global Marketing at Carter’s, said in a press release.

Now through April 17, families can enter for a chance to win one of five bundles that include an Airplane Apology Agreement, 15 envelopes, each containing $100 cash cards, and a bonus bodysuit for the baby to wear on the plane. All you have to do is visit to enter.
