(VIDEO) Airline Moves Man Seated Next to Unaccompanied Children

If your child had to fly somewhere alone, would you prefer the airline seat him next to a man — or a woman?

Parents who answer "a woman" are in lock step with the policy of Virgin Air. The airline recently reseated a male passenger who was originally next to two young boys flying without their parents.

The passenger, a firefighter from Australia named Johnny McGirr, was angered and humiliated by the action, which he felt made him look like a suspected pedophile in the eyes of other passengers. But a child safety advocate interviewed by CNN named John Shehan counters that Virgin's policy lowers the risk of children being victimized, since "the overwhelming majority of sex offenders are male."

Virgin is currently reviewing their policy. Do you think they should change it?
