I thought this quote from United in a story totally unrelated to the minor misadventure we covered yesterday was pretty hilarious, all things considered.
On United Airlines “there is no specific seating policy,” airline spokesman Joe Micucci told CNN. “That said, United has an overlapping security approach designed to ensure the safety and security of unaccompanied minors.”
Bad timing, just a little.
The issue here is the policy adopted by some airlines that grown men are not allowed to sit next to children flying by themselves because, as you know, we just can’t wait to molest the innocence out of them.
This is something Carin covered a couple years ago. It was a dumb policy then, and it’s a dumb policy now. Thankfully Virgin Australia is reviewing it, at least. If they need some evidence in favour of getting rid of it, let us not forget what happens when you let the snowflakes sit next to women.
