Re: United Tries to Seat 2-,4-,6-Year Old Children Separate from Parents

I think the FAA should have a policy that anyone 6 or younger is seated next to a parent or travel companion over 18. Not a good idea to have them seated alone for them and the people next to them. People should have to pay to book seats together, and if the airline can't deliver, they should pay $...
