3 Kids Purchase Airline Tickets and Fly Alone to Tennessee

Nobody asked any questions or for identification of 3 kids, who rode in a taxi, passed through airport security and boarded a flight bound for Tennessee alone.  Now their parents are wondering just how the trip was possible.  “I just wanted to fly,” said 15-year-old Bridget Brown, “I had the money.”  The adventurous idea began with a text message that read “Hey do you want to go 2 Tennessee today.” “Sure” was the response.  The three children ages 11, 13, and 15- unbeknownst to their parents- took a taxi to the airport, bought tickets with baby sitting money and boarded a Southwest Airlines flight from Jacksonville, FL to Nashville TN.  When they landed in Nashville with only $40 left, they finally called home.  Southwest Airlines said in a statement that the company’s policy on minors is similar to other carriers in that it covers children ages 5 to 11 traveling alone and that the 11-year-old was accompanied by older companions.  The Transportation Security Administration does not require anyone under the age of 18 to show identification.  Brown said she had no problem purchasing the tickets at the Southwest Airlines counter.  “He said OK and told us how much it would be and then we paid him,” Brown said.  “Then he put the flight things on our bags, and then he said, “You better run because you might miss your flight.” There were no issues at security either.  The parents are just glad their children made it home safely.
