Last fall, one mother in Maryland, Susan Cole, wanted to fly her 12 year-old son Danny from Baltimore Washington Airport to Houston so he could catch a football game with his dad. She assumed Southwest Airlines would let her son preboard.

My soon to be 12 year old has been talking about flying alone to India next summer. Not that I am going to let him, but it is nice to have these tips all the same. Thanks for the great tips!
