During Layover, Flight Crew Goes ‘Above and Beyond’ for 5-Year-old Flying Solo
This 5-year-old was all set to have a safe flight as an unaccompanied minor last month – but then the kindness of the crew made it even better
Since Southwest Airlines reportedly allows children aged 5 and up to travel unaccompanied (as long as it is either a nonstop flight or non-plane change layover), Aisley Schatz was flying home to Orlando, Florida from visiting her grandparents in Los Angeles, California
The youngster was on a non-plane change layover in Omaha when she tried to call her mother Natesha on her tablet, only to have the call give out.
That’s when Jessica Darnell, one of the trip’s flight attendants, offered up her own phone so Aisley could FaceTime her mother.
