American Airlines Raises the Fee for Unaccompanied Minors
August 27, 2014 at 6:32 AM
Air travel is going to cost a little more to send the little ones all on their own, as American Airlines is making some changes to their unaccompanied minor policy.
Previously the fee covered minors between ages five and eleven, but now it looks like they’re going to charge you for tweens as well—up to age fourteen. This is on top of regular fares, so you’ll be looking at $150 extra—and that’s each way—to send the kiddos without supervision.
They claim that the policy change is a result of shacking up with US Airways, as this is more in alignment with what that carrier was offering. It’s also similar to offerings from Delta and United, but from what we can tell it’s the priciest with the largest age range.
We’re not saying your children aren’t worth it, but for $150 each way you might as well go with them!
