AIR TRAVEL

Keeping up with airline policies can be as time-consuming as planning a vacation!  Many airlines have different policies regarding unaccompanied minors, postponed or cancelled flights, checked luggage fees/requirements, lost/damaged luggage, ticket changes, pets, etc. It is important for travelers to check with the specific airlines involved in their trips, especially if your trip requires multiple carriers. Be sure to read the airline policies before you purchase a ticket!
