TODAY star Al Roker has dished out some tough love while co-hosting a recent episode of the morning show.
During Tuesday’s episode of Today 3rd Hour, the news desk informed viewers that Corendon Airlines was “testing out an adult’s only section.”
The Turkish airplane company will have the section “in front of the plane” and only make the seats available for purchase to those “16-years-old or older.”
Immediately after Dylan, 43, introduced the topic, she and Sheinelle, 45, chattered about how they individually felt about Corendon’s plans.
Jacob directly asked Al if he was a “quiet car on the train” type of guy after Sheinelle likened Corendon’s adults-only section to the “quiet car part of the train.”
Al, 68, confessed that he didn’t need to have the quiet car of a train, taking a brief moment to stand up for families that travel.
“Listen, people and families traveling is a part of travel, so suck it up,” Al insisted.
“It’s not that big a deal.”
Al has been consistent on the third hour of Today this week, unlike some of his co-stars.

MISSING ON MONDAY
Half of the hosts were missing and replaced by two fan-favorites on Monday’s episode.
Yesterday, Al Roker and his co-anchor Craig Melvin, 45, sat at their normal spots at the desk, but Sheinelle and Dylan were absent.
Sheinelle was last on the show on Friday, and Dylan hasn’t been on since August 23.
No one filled in for her during those days off.
Fill-ins Jill Martin and Jacob Soboroff took the women’s spots at the desk on Monday, however.
“Good morning, everybody. Welcome to the Third Hour of Today. I’m Al, along with Mr. Melvin,” Al Roker opened the show.
“We’ve got our good buddies Jill Martin and Jacob Soboroff here while Sheinelle and Dylan are enjoying a little time off.”
Al then asked the hosts how their weekends were before they got into the topics of the day.
Jill shared the news that she would be filling in on her Instagram Story.
“See you tmrw @todayshow 9-10am while my pals @sheinelle_o @dylandreyernbc take some well-deserved time off,” she captioned the post.
Jill added a photo to the message of her sitting in her car, slightly smiling with sunglasses on her face.
The 47-year-old also shared videos of herself getting her makeup done for the show.
Along with Sheinelle and Dylan, Savannah Guthrie, 51, and Hoda Kotb, 59, were also missing on Monday.
The main hosts were replaced by Craig and Kristen Welker, 47, who typically anchors Weekend Today.
However, neither Craig nor Kristen gave any reason as to why the main hosts were absent.
