Leavin' on a jet plane

I made it back to Switzerland today, safe and sound. Back to the land of normal-sized toilets and full-sheet paper towels and no election primary frenzy, thank goodness. I have my one and only exam this semester tomorrow morning -- nice to get it out of the way right off the bat.

I was really surprised to see a 5-year-old girl flying by herself. She was seated in the middle of the plane, with strangers on either side of her. I don't mean to stick my nose where it doesn't belong, but I question her parents' judgement...

Going to unpack now.

I can't imagine that it's legal to have such a little girl on the plane by herself.

I was going to say the same thing. I would never let a child that young fly by herself. Although, when I was young, I wanted to go on adventures by myself! She is brave! :D

She was definitely brave, and very well-behaved for the duration of the flight.

I checked several airlines' unaccompanied minor policies, and they all take kids as young as five as passengers as long as they have all the correct documentation. I was definitely keeping an eye on that girl for the whole flight, just in case anything happened.
