United changes policy for kids flying alone

CHICAGO (WLS) -- You may have to spend more if you're sending your child alone to fly on United Airlines.

United has expanded the age range of children who must use a $150 service when flying by themselves to age 15. The previous age was 12.

A United spokesman says the change will provide the best care for travelers.

The rule applies for tickets sold after December 14.

Delta and American charge $150 for a similar age range.
