Hey all,
Whats the youngest age you can sit in an exit row? I thought it was 18 but someone said that it was only 15.

Whats the ages for QF and AA especially

Cheers

The FAA states that persons no less that fifteen years of age may sit in an exit row. That is for all US carriers. Overseas I cannont speak for.


The only valid opinions are those based in facts

Yeah, it's 15.

Coming back from CUN a few months ago, the gate agent mixed up and had a bunch of people in the wrong seat. I was supposed to go in the exit row, but i need another 8 months for that. The F/A was trying to figure it out, but an eight year old was already in the exit. We got bumped to 1st for no charge  spin  But, of course, I (along with probably everyone else her @ a.net could open the exit faster than half the people that get assigned those seats.

Exit Rows are assigned to the people who I would least want in those rows all too often (myself included)
I flew KL in exit row (I'm 15), and had no problems with them or the FAs, but I can't speak for other foreign carriers
