Japan Airline introduces perfect solution for passengers who hate sitting next to kids

Airlines tend to cater to people with children by offering them toys and candies.

I think is is a good idea, but INCOMPLETE.
On that same application for booking signalize also:

AIR SICK VOMITING PEOPLE ( comments needed? )

Guess not too many people will want to be seated anywhere near YOU!
