United is no longer allowing children ages 5-11 to fly without an adult on flights that include connections.

The airline also says service for unaccompanied minors ages 12-17 will be offered only on nonstop flights.

United also charges a fee of $150 dollars each way for children flying alone.

U.S. Airways and Southwest have similar policies.
