Two Kids End Up in Wrong Cities After Flying Alone

Would You Let Your Child Fly Solo?

Wee ones eager to earn their wings at an early age have no problem jet-setting around the country by themselves. Divorced families and transplanted grandparents keep unchaperoned youngsters at the top of mileage reward programs. While most airlines have an unaccompanied minor program, it's not a guarantee the child will get to their destination safe and sound. A while ago, a flight attendant was allegedly to blame for an eight-year-old's illness. Then recently, another eight-year-old and a 10-year-old each ended up in the wrong cities on separate occasions. While I'll certainly want my tots to visit their family, I don't know when I'll be brave enough to let them travel alone. Would you put your child on a solo flight?
