    Afraid your children won't get to sit next to you on a flight? Starting today, leisure carrier Allegiant Air says that's unlikely to happen on its planes.

    Allegiant has changed its check-in system so passengers under age 14 will be seated next to at least one adult traveling on the same flight.

    Andrew Levy, president of Allegiant Travel, says the change won't guarantee an entire family will be seated together. But it will keep children from being separated entirely from a parent or guardian. The airline also doesn't allow unaccompanied minors to fly by themselves.
    The move comes as the busy summer vacation travel season gets underway and as as airlines, including Allegiant, have increasingly begun charging fees for advanced seat assignments, even in coach class.

    Category: It's life today. Indeed, it's sad. Common sense out of the window.
