Does my 2 year old need her own frequent Flyer card?

This is the first time we had to pay for a seat for her, so I'm not sure how it works... Specifically Delta and United...

Thanks Ladies!

  • They wouldn't let my son use my frequent flyer miles, he was 12 at the time they told me to get him a card. This was southwest. I'm sure they all are like that though. Which is stupid, because adults fly more than kids and it's wasted miles in my opinion. If you earned the miles you should be able to let your kid use them, it's not like you are giving them to a friend or something. But that's how they make money i guess.

  • I'm sorry i didn't answer your question, yes, she is an adult fare now, so you may as well get her a card. :)

  • My daughter has had one since she was 3 months old. Why wouldn't you get one?
