Questions Raised After 15-Year Old And Friends Fly Without Parents

View Comments

Mischievous teens who managed to get aboard a Southwest Airlines jet have raised questions about who can buy tickets.
A 15-year old Florida girl used her babysitting money to buy tickets for herself, a 13-year old friend and her 11-year old brother to fly to Nashville without parents knowing it.  She ordered the tickets over the phone, bought them at the counter and Whitney Eichinger of Southwest says that’s the way the system works for children.
They were visiting the girl’s grandmother in Nashville.  She immediately put them back on a return flight.  Southwest reimbursed the cost.
