True funny story... - 11/23/13 02:37 PM

This summer when I took my grandson to the airport to go back home, I told the Delta desk clerk I needed a security pass because I am with an unaccompanied minor.
The clerk looked around then bent over the counter looking at the ground. With a puzzled look on her face she asked where's the child? I said he's right here next to me! The expression on the desk clerk's face was PRICELESS. She blurted out "HOW OLD ARE YOU?"
My grandson is 14 & 6'3" tall. laugh

The clerk went to find her manager. The manager told her there are NO EXCEPTIONS. All unaccompanied minors under the age of 17 are to be accompanied to the plane by an adult guardian.

When the manager left, the desk clerk mumbled under her breath, Delta needs to change their policy. This don't make no damn sense. laugh

The woman's a twit!
Even if your GS is 7'3"
he's still only 14 yrs old.

She's just mumbling because she
felt she'd been made to look stupid. smirk

You know what? Prior to the growth spurt, a few times I noticed when he gets off the plane, he is never with a stewardess although he has his unaccompanied minor paperwork in hand for me to sign over to them. I really never thought much about it. When I mentioned this to my daughter & SIL, both were highly upset to say the least. They ripped off a snail mail letter to Delta & complained to the ex-mayor, Shirley Franklin who just happens to sit on Delta's board & is also my grandson's surrogate grandparent.
Now when he leaves the plane he's surrounded by them & they have the paperwork in hand for me to sign.
Oh, he now flies FIRST CLASS unaccompanied!!! laugh
