No non-stop, no kids on United
CHICAGO- If a family wants to send a child unaccompanied on a United Airlines flight, the trip has to be non-stop or the child stays home.
United says no more children flying alone ages five to eleven without an adult on a flight that has connections.
United made the change quietly two weeks ago.
It charges an extra $150 for children flying alone.
The policy is similar to what US Airways and Southwest have.
Delta and American will still help youngsters flying alone make their connecting flights.
