I'm trying to book flights from nyc-tlv with LOT
 5 tickets with amex travel in economy (under 18) and 2 (adults ) in business thru united, but amex wont let me do it because there is no one on the reservation thats over 18, can i switch the DOB of one of the kids so she should b over 18 and then call the airline or amex after i booked the flight to switch it back to correct DOB?
Thanks in advance...

Why not just put one adult on each reservation and one of the children on the business class ticket?

Was trying to avoid that so that both adults can go into the lounge...

put any DOB, 98.75% it makes no difference, except if you need to have a Child discount

It's also relevant for TSA pre check. You won't get it if the DOB isn't correct.

On Alaska, I was not able to book a (AA) flight for my 15 year old, even though he's old enough to fly alone. Called Alaska, and they said to put in a bogus birthday, and then call to switch it back. She said that even if she made the resy, she would need to do the same thing.

Some airlines will not let you book in online if the entire party is under 18. So you may want to leave it.

I did. when i called the first time, I asked her her name, so when I call back, I can reference her, she said not to worry,  everyone here does it like that! When I called back to have them switch  it, it was no issue at all.
