My brother wants to invite my 7 year old DS up for a weekend ski trip. It would mean having him fly unaccompanied -- what are people's thoughts on this? The flight would be about an hour and 20 minutes. I've told my brother the only way I'd consider it would be if I knew he was at the airport BEFORE I put put my son on the plane. I figure the chances of a delay or detour due to weather would be slight because of the short flight, so my brother getting stuck in traffic is probably the biggest concern. BTW my son is not concerned at all -- he thinks this is a great idea.
