Welcome Steph,

Hopefully someone will be able to answer your question soon.
Although I've flown to Australia several times it's always been with adults.
Usually the stopovers involve staying in the airport, or even an intransit lounge.
It may be worth checking that with some airlines since that may decided who they fly with.

Regards,
Karen

hi, ive been about 8 times and out of all the companies like quantas, british airways, brunei, virgin, singapore id always choose singapore airways. I dont think theres many companies that offer great value for money, i paid about £850 rtn, you always stop off at changi airport in singapore which is safest airport i think ive ever been to. its that safe i had 4 men point guns at me just coz i was wearing a cap when i checked in and coz i had a laptop in my bag. its the way they do things and more countried should follow them i think. your daughter will be safe there you got no worries. prob more safe there than at heathrow airport!

I found some information on Qantas by searching for 'unaccompanied minors'. It sounds pretty straightforward, and there is no mention of extra cost. However, since you can't book on-line, you will probably end up paying a higher fare. There was no mention of it, but I've heard that you usually have to pay full fare, which is usually reallly high.

The people who will be taking her through the boarding, transit, immigration, and customs process are only required to get her through safely. I knew two sisters who made unaccompanied trips from the South Pacific to England every year to attend boarding school. They loved the layove in LA, because their minder would take them to a restaurant for a meal, and let them order anything they wanted. They had multiple-course meals consisting solely of ice cream concoctions.
