SAN FRANCISCO -

It's a traveler's worst nightmare: getting stuck on a packed plane with a crying baby.

For passengers on an American Airlines flight last week, it was two crying babies.  But at least the passengers were warned -- and rewarded.

Before the flight from San Francisco to Washington took off, the parents of two 14-week-old twins handed passengers goodie bags full of candy.

A passenger on the flight tweeted a photo of the gift bag.  Taped to each bag was a note written from the babies' perspective.

The note read, in part: "Hello! We're twin baby boys on our first flight ... Our mom and dad have ear plugs available if you need them."

Many of the passengers said they appreciated that the parents were doing their best to keep the disruption to a minimum.
