We want to fly our son to visit family in California for the month of July. He is 10. I can fly him via Air Canada from Toronto on his own on a direct flight (which is the only option for an unaccompanied minor) OR I can accompany him and fly out of Buffalo for nearly the same price. The problem is logistics!
Here is the "sched".
Me and son leave Toronto together.
I return from CA alone after one week.
Son remains for one month
Son and his cousin (who is 11) fly back together (on Air Canada as unaccompanied minors).
Cousin flies back to CA with his grandmother.
Obviously we want all parties to be seated with each other on all flights but wow, the logistics of doing this are brutal. I am NOT an experienced flier! Any advice??
