When I was 12, my 7-year-old sister and I flew alone. Didn't seem like a big deal but now it is...

"Continental Airlines said it has taken steps to ensure that proper procedures are followed after two unaccompanied girls were placed on wrong Continental Express flights over the weekend. An 8-year-old College Station girl erroneously ended up in Fayetteville, Ark., and a 10-year-old Massachusetts girl was mistakenly sent to Newark, N.J., after boarding planes operated by ExpressJet, which is under contract with Continental."

Did you ever fly on an airplane by yourself when you were younger than 13?

Oh noo.. .
12 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 7/1/09 - 3:38:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
I only flew once when I was under 13, and I was with my parents.
That's a bit scary, though, kids ending up in the wrong places.

I traveled from VA to CA alone when I was 7 and a few times from VA to MI and VA to NY before I was 13. I never thought it was weird. It was pre-2001 so relatives could always usher me straight to the gate and see me off and be right at the gate when I got there.

The CA plane trip had a connection so one flight attendant was in charge of shepherding all the kids (there were maybe four of us) to our proper gates.

12 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 7/1/09 - 5:31:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, but I did when I was 14.
12 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 7/1/09 - 7:04:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nope - but I know others that have...
12 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 7/1/09 - 7:07:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
Oh - I read this question as 'did you ever fly an airplane by yourself'!
But no, I have never flew on an airoplane on my own.
12 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 7/1/09 - 7:10:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
I didn't even go on a plane for the first time until I was 15
12 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 7/1/09 - 7:12:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, many times. My parents lived on opposite coasts. The most memorable was when I got stuck in Chicago overnight by myself when the first flight was delayed on take off.
12 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 7/1/09 - 7:21:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nope. The first time I went on an airplane I was 23, and I wasn't even alone then.
12 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 7/1/09 - 7:35:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, the first time I went on a plane was when I was 27 and I was with my mum and step-dad.
12 yrs ago - Wednesday 7/1/09 - 7:54:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
I flew from CA to FL by myself when I was 8.
12 yrs ago - Thursday 7/2/09 - 5:03:21 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, I have been flying from Spain to Germany multiple times a year since I was like 6 (and sometimes alone)

It was AWESOME when I got lost at the airport because the air hostess told me to wait for a minute... You should have seen my parent´s face when they found me sitting on a bench happily playing with my Game Boy XD XD

oh i thought you meant piloting the bloody aircraft for a minute!!! i did that when I was about 20 under supervision from my friend who was a qualified pilot, as a passenger actually about the same age. I can see the sense in restricting it.
