Allegiant Airlines allows parents to sit with kids
I've heard from many parents complaining that airlines often won't let them sit next to their children. One airline wants to change that. Allegiant Airlines made a promise from now on it will let children sit with at least one parent.
The airline says it will simply change its check-in policy so anyone under 14 years of age sits with an adult flying with them.
Many airlines are packing planes so full, they can't guarantee families will sit together because they're charging more for aisle and window seats.
Often parents have to pay for an upgrade to simply sit next to their child.
