BA changes child seating policy following court case30 August 2010
British Airways has changed its longstanding policy of banning lone male travellers from sitting next to unaccompanied children on its flights.
The airline had been sued by a traveller who said the policy was discriminatory – something BA denied. The case was settled and BA agreed to a review. From now on, unaccompanied children will be seated in a special area on BA planes.
In the UK, it is up to individual airlines to decide on how to treat unaccompanied minors.
