I was on Finnair.com earlier today and was surprised that they have a Frequent Flyer program for people under 15, called JuniorPlus. When you turn 16, the points go right into your personal Finnair Plus account. It sounds pretty cool. I have a few questions.
1) Are their any other airlines with frequent flyer programs for youths?
2) Even though I live in the states, could I become a member and use it on Finnair partner, American?
3) Are any of you members of Frequent Flyer programs like this, or have been?
4)Can they be used on partner airlines?
Give me a break, I created this username when I was a kid...

Qualiflyer in fact does have a child/youth friendly mileage program. The program - like ZRH has stated - is in fact identical to the normal one for adults but children and youth aged between 2 and 26 get 2000 bonus miles per round trip on European and 4000 on inter-continental flights. That makes it very attractive for the mentioned age group. A couple of examples:
4000 miles for ZRH - FRA roundtrip
15646 miles for ZRH - SFO roundtrip
5000 miles needed for a C-class upgrade in Europe
15000 miles needed for a companion ticket in Europe
As you can see practically only 1 flight gets you a free trip.

Skyteam partner AeroMexico has the "Club Premier Universitario" or "Club Premier Students". You get 4000 miles for joining and all the redemptions (free tickets, class upgrades) are only 75% of the mileage required for the normal members. After you graduate from college you get 6000 miles more.
Examples of Award tickets for students are:
Free round trip ticket between Mexico:
24,000kms or 15,000miles
Free round trip ticket between Mexico and the United States:
36,000kms or 22,500miles
Free round trip ticket between Mexico and Europe:
60,000kms or 37,500miles
This is why I use Skyteam. I get excellent deals with Club Premier.

United's College Plus, which is more geared towards college students, and has more lenient terms & requirements. And, upon college graduation, members get a bonus 10,000 miles and "graduate" to the full-fledged Mileage Plus program.
