Airlines charge parents an extra $300 to keep their children safe when they’re flying alone, but just how protected are they? A 13-year-old girl who flew from Dallas to Portland by herself over the summer says she was sexually assaulted by a stranger sitting beside her. With as many as 400,000 children flying alone on any given weekend, Inside Edition conducted a demonstration to see how easy it can be for someone to approach an unaccompanied minor. #InsideEdition

I blame parents letting their kids go solo
…A problem only existing because of patchwork families, widely shattered relatives and parents not wanting to invest time in their children
Imagine this is was backwards. No one would care. They would think kid is being weird attracted to an older woman.
I gasped when they said Boston… Poor kid.
1:17 bro was shaking like crazy
American Airlines? Hell no. I’ll only trust ANA or SIA
Dang bro people really didn’t have a clue what Covid was.
Well, parents shouldn't allow their child to fly alone PROBLEM SOLVED
I have a Positive Possible Solution for this Safety Issues regarding unaccompanied children traveling on Airlines, Transportation Buses, etc.
Children should be supervised by a parent or a trained Professional of the Airline to be with children during the entire trip, because of all the craziness going on with child predators
I Suggest a possible alternative solution to this issues regarding Child Travel Safety.
There could Be a introduction and implementation Program integration for Training of Safety Travel Concierge Staff Professional
There duties would Be to accompany the child from the beginning of drop off by a the Parent or confirmed Guardian.
From that point the child would Be accompanied by the trained Safety Professional from beginning to the end of the trip.
The Trained Safety Travel Advocate would Be provided to wear a body cam, to provide confirmation of the Safe Travel and Accompaniment from the pick up and drop off of the traveling child.
The child could Be seated alone in one seat and the Traveling Safety Staff Professional could Be seated opposite row to the left or right directly across from the child.
This Travel Safety Staff Professional would maintain direct view of child, while also providing social distance space, by sitting across from the child.
After the flight was completed the child would Be accompanied by the Airline Safety Staff Professional directly from the flight to the pick up destination point location, and the child would Be transfer to the waiting accompanying Parent or verified guardian.
The receiving parent or pick up guardian would have to provide all necessary information, documentation, verifiable identification.
A picture or body camera footage could Be used to confirm pick up and drop off of the child.
This is a Safety Suggestion for the Airlines to Consider intergrating and the Implementing into their Safety Protocol.

Why would any parent's allow their children's to fly alone😥
Sorry, it should be illegal for a minor to travel alone. Lazy parenting.
I would not let my kid ever to go fly his self / herself because no one knows what will happen
No way in hell would I let a child travel alone. I was strict with my daughter she 39 years old today thank God I had sense enough to protect her from danger.
Touching her for 30 mins😡
I flew in the Qatar airways by myself and im 11 to watch the worls cup
paying 300 dollars doesnt get you a get out of parenting card. if something goes wrong its your fault not theirs
I think it's common sense that you DON'T leave a child unattended In an Airplane now.
Close to staff and having rows to themselves is a great idea to me.
I fly on boeing747
I should traveal to santo Domingo mayimbe should pick me up from the air port 🛩🇺🇸🇩🇴🕴🎤🎸
I can't imagine sending my child on a plane alone….or anywhere alone, in general with the way the world is
Umm.. That should be illegal to allow a minor or ages 21 and below to fly by themselves. Come on parents wtf?! It don't matter how mature the child is parents should know better. Common sense is foreign in this damn country.
when I was around 8, I was sent alone on a plane.
there was a couple- 60 ish years old
the man was in the middle seat
and the woman was in the aisle seat
and nothing essentially bad happened,
but i remember feeling so uncomfortable as he talked for me the whole hour, and took pictures of me and put them onto facebook.
i remember him telling me he was going to give my mother his phone number so we could stay in contact, and i remember practically running to my mother, and then shooeing my mother away from the gate so that she wouldn’t see him and decide a friendship was a good idea.
i also remember the woman looking uncomfortable. she should’ve nudged him to leave me alone.
window seats for a child alone seems stupid
they should be able to run away from strangers!
I road on a greyhound bus with my mom at 10 years old. I sat in the seat behind her. At some point a man sat next to me slipped his hands under my blanket and molested me *fing**ed me. I was frozen quiet. I can't explain why I didn't say anything. My mom woke up the next morning to him resting his head on my shoulder. She cursed him out. She didn't know what he did that night. Still doesn't because she also yelled at me for allowing him to lay on my shoulder.
THAT GUY COULD DO WHATEVER YOU WANTED TO A GIRL LIKE THAT FOR 30 MINUTES? 🤔
Did the mom called interpol to find his kid?
what if it was a boy that gets touched in inaprorate places huh oh the news wont cover it be a man kid man up child we defend women rights feminsit

Flying to Texas to see my dad but am 12 and am flying solo and help! Am forced to go idk what to do any? Tips
"hes putting the safety of his child in the hands of american airlines" 😆not american airlines oh no
there just stalking her
When I was 9 I went to England with my family. Our flight got screwed up and we all got separated throughout the plane. 4 kids 2 were 9 one 11 and one 12. I sat in between elderly English couple. I was drinking coffee at that age hahaha so I ordered coffee…they had s great laugh because my father was in the back of the plane telling the stewardess after 3 I've had enough and to not serve me anymore haha the old man offered to get the lamb dinner and let me try it because I've never had lamb before. And at the end of the flight I got their bags down from over top and they gave me 2 pounds to spend on candy. I'll never forget that flight. Or those people.
What kind of parent's let their kid's travel anywhere let alone on a plane?
Bro when I see those kids I play rps, hangman, and tic tac toe wtf is wrong with people
Home alone 2
why is any child traveling alone anyway .
1:42 oh my gah
Honestly this is sensationalism
How the hell is it legal to let children travel alone?
Any parent who puts their child’s safety in some stranger’s hands and thinks “they will be safe” is justifiable should be charged
1:46 Chad Camp got me there
1:18 super weird thing to do even if you’re making a story about it. Was she aware you’re staging this?
I pray for my bestie that is to flying San Francisco in a while she will go
Who even decides to let a stranger supervise your child. My babies safety will alwayssssss be more important than that job you gotta get back to or that person you’d rather not see.
Wrong to let little kids travel alone.
It's not mother's worst nightmare it's mother's worst mistake.. That's really not smart to let kids fly by their own no matter what.. You must expect something similar to happen to your child.. I'm sorry but letting children fly alon is a STUPID idea 😒
Well take them your f////ng self.
