Etihad Airways, the national carrier of the United Arab Emirates, has just launched a new "service": "flying nannies."

Women dressed in orange uniforms will work on planes on long-haul routes, supporting parents of young children and helping unaccompanied minors.

Nannies are to assist parents in the often long and exhausting journey with toddlers, offering games, crayons, blocks and various forms of fun that take time and attention of the youngest. The carrier explains its decision by the fact that "children's behavior is often unpredictable", hence additional help in many situations can be invaluable.

So far, the carrier has trained 300 crew members. Ultimately, it is planned to send 200 additional courses for additional courses. The pilot program, which is to permanently appear on board Etihad Airways, even has its own song happily sung by "sky nannies".

A good idea? Maybe a similar one would be worth using on trains and buses?
