    Wonder what he was doing. Must have been out of control to be removed from the flight. At six years old, he's pretty young to be traveling alone. That's near the lower limits of age for Unaccompanied Minors for most airlines.

    Good for them, what else could they do with the kid? Too bad they don't do this more often with kids travelling with their parents. Of course, then I might have taken a lot less flights in my lifetime.

    I can't even imagine letting my son at 9 fly alone.

    Perhaps the parents were trying to get rid of him.

    If he behaves like that I don't blame them!

    Maybe he got frightened and scared that he was on this big plane with strangers trying to strap him down??

    Exactly. I'm sorry, but I cannot think of a possible reason a 6 year old should be flying on a plane by themselves. I wouldn't dream of sending my almost 11 year old on a plane by herself! Poor kid is just a baby.

    Stupid parents.

    Re: 6-Year-Old Kicked Off Flight

    I heard about this on the news this morning. It made me laugh so hard because I remember all the times my parents would tell me, "Do you want me to turn this car around?" If he was being a brat I'm glad they kicked him off. But then again I could totally understand if he was scared.

    I thought that at that age they had to have a flight attendant or some one with them?

    I know on SWA kids can fly alone starting at 5. My boys have flown alone since they were young, a custody thing....I didn't have a choice. by the time the younger one was nearing 6 they had flown alone about 8 times. Maybe the kid was scared, or maybe he was just a spoiled brat. Could be either!

    Seriously! I remember flying when I was turning 13 and I was still extremely terrified. The only time I was actually without my parents was when I walked past the ticket gate and then walking off the plane past the ticket gate again on the other end, but I was freaked out. At 6, they don't even really understand what they are feeling and why they are feeling it, much less how to react to it.

    Oh, and never mind all the weirdos and pervs out there lurking!

    I doubt that this even would even factor into the scenario since the airlines require that the parents/guardians are there to hand the minor child over to an airline attendant during check-in who is charge of watching over them.

    The airlines are responsible for the welfare and safety of that minor until handing them over to another parent or guardian at the destination gate.

    This particular child, to me, sounds like they were immature, a brat, or had other issues about being sent on this flight by themselves.

    Actually, there have been instances of kids who were traveling alone being molested ON an airplane, so that isn't out of the realm of possiblity.

    The kid may be a brat or have some behavioral problems, but I agree that a 6 year old should NOT be allowed to travel alone like that. Kids need parental guidance, they lack the maturity and experience to always know how to behave or react. I can't fathom how anyone would think a 6 year old being, for the most part, unsupervised is acceptable.
