Any way around paying "Unaccompanied minor" fees for a 14 yr old?

Alternatively, does anyone know someone on her flights: Mon Aug 1st, Newark- TLV 1:30pm, or early Tues morning Aug 23rd, 12:30AM TLV-Newark.

Send her on her own. My 14 yo daughter travelled on her own last week, no problem. We took her to the airport, gave her instructions, and she was picked up at the other end...

The problem is not with her flying alone, its trying to avoid paying the "Unaccompanied minor" charges.

When I look for a roundtrip, one option is: Economy special fare *limited edition, which is slightly cheaper. I remember seeing months ago people were talking about this but didn't pay much attention... Can anyone fill me in now?

thanks

Coach from JFK/EWR - TLV is still 70K roundtrip, and biz 200k? And that's MR prices, correct?

My experience is I had no problems doing it (ever) but supposedly a backpack does not count as a personal  item, like purse or laptop case.

I tried last summer taking a briefcase and a rolling bag and was told that next time, I could only bring one carryon.

They did give me stickers at the checkin for them, with no problem. The rolling bag may have even been a bit overweight.

I saw that yesterday's LY2 from JFK was operated by HI FLY on a A345.

Was anyone on the flight, any feedback?

I checked the company's website and honestly their J looks incredibly better than LY or PS

No
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Yes. The workaround is to open an account via Amex and it's free. But if you go via the link on their website, they charge $25 and give a bonus 25 Matmid points.
