This is beyond insane.
If anyone knows of other companies that pursue these kind of discriminatory and sexist policies, please let me know in the comments section. Because it's quite apparent that they exist.
Other airlines One News spoke to have similar guidelines. They say it's to protect male passengers from potential allegations as much as the children.
How very thoughtful. Assuming they're referring to potential false allegations, for I don't see why they would want to protect someone from a truthful one, wouldn't it be a better idea to deal with the people making such false accusations?
(Either that, or I want to be seated next to really pretty single women in exchange.)
