Concerns on our policy for children travelling alone

We understand the concerns raised around our policy for children travelling alone, a long standing policy initially based on customer feedback.

In light of recent feedback, we’re now reviewing this policy. Our intention is certainly not to discriminate in any way.

    As a parent of young children, (fenale), that frequently fly unaccompanied, I am IN COMPLETE support of any policy that seats children next to other UM, or women. There is mounds of crime-data that shows that women HARDLY ever commit crimes against children. The ones that do, statistics show it’s OFTEN their own children who are the victim. Here in the US, most airlines have this same policy, and it WORKS here. It works to keep MY children safe. I agree the airlines should try to work it out before everyone is seated, but that isn’t always an option at busy airport gates. Quit crying discrimination, and think if it WAS YOUR OWN CHILDREN, on a flight alone. You’d want the airline to keep them safe, particularly young girls.

    This sounds like a bunch of whiners who don’t get the real issue. The children come first. This policy seeks to put child safety first and foremost above all else. How can that be a bad thing? Just change your seat, quit whining and thank the airline for being overly cautious when it comes to keeping children safe.
