    Do you mean flying unaccompanied? Airlines usually have a member of staff to look after kids and the such who make sure they get met at the other end by a relative etc. But saying that, I've flown to America by myself when I was 15. That was with BA.

    2 17 year olds flying. Got a grand master money making scheme in the works, and trying to work out whether or not it'll work out. Sounds like it might :D

    Cheers Tim [if that is your real name... :chin:]

    Most airlines will take people of any age (obviously not babies) normally for young kids they have a member of staff look after them at the airport, and then someone meet them at the other end until the are collected by the correct parent/guardian.
    I flew on my own at 13, no probs! If its for a holiday the company normally wants a letter to say its ok from parent etc

    Yeh you'll be totally fine to fly abroad at 17 to carry out your devious plans. I'm intrigued though!

    My cousin lives in new york and she came over as young as 13 by herself but she had to be accompanied to the airport and had ot have a relative to go to when she got here which was fine, my mate was 17 when he went to go to america to work and was nearly deprted because of it, he had to ring his uncle who lived there to sort things out but then again he was staying for 3 months, i'm not sure tbh.
