My son visits his dad in another state....

I am seriously considering letting him fly UM(Unaccompanied minor). Do any moms out there do this? What can you do with "frequent flier miles" or how do you use them?
Any good experiences? Bad experiences?

  • You may wind up paying more for the (full fare) unaccompanied minor ticket. Definitely check the prices before making your decision.

  • The flight is only 2 hours as oppose to driving 12 hours. I kinda expect that for the convenience. I'm hoping to rack up Frequent flier miles
