Do not put you children on AMR as UM. I am dealing with Larry, and supe, in CS. I'm trying to find out if the person that is supposed to pick up my child has done so. Larry will not give me and answer. I know who I signed to do so. A "yes" answer would suffice. Larry will not let me speak. He doesn't like me interrupting, but interrupts me.

Stay away from AAL!

How about paying for your own ticket and taking them there yourself? We are airlines not babysitters.

Airlines are if they offer UM service. He paid for the service, they owe him the service.

He paid 15 bucks to check his kid's bag. Using your logic, he shouldn't expect it to get there with her, either. Maybe he should have her carry on her clothes in a 33 gallon garbage bag like the majority of your family probably does.

I don't understand the disconnect. If you signed for your child on the departure end you obviously were the guardian at that time. Makes no sense that they would not relay the info.

Next time you might buy a throw away cellphone so your kid can call when they land.

I don't work for AA but they don't want to give out that info for a couple of reason and it involves the security of the child and just general security. Where I work they tell you make sure to have the person doing the pick up call you..

Are you stupid? Why don't you call the person you authorized to pick them up and find out? AA cannot verify your identity on the phone.

Why didn't you tell the person picking up your child to call you immediately? I don't think I could ever put my kids on a flight alone. However, I would make damn sure that I had direct contact with the person picking them up. Crazy.

You can get an extra cellphone. You can have the phone provider block texting (AT&T did it for me). That way you can have the kid call you directly. I assume there is an ex involved, so you don't have to worry about being blown off by her. But hey, even if there is no ex, grandma and grandpa forget things sometimes! I agree that the airline can't verify who you are over the phone, and I don't want them to give out that info unless they can verify it. I also understand your frustration, so get the extra phone!:beer:

Hey, at least you didn't put him/her on XJT. You may never have seen your kid again. :laugh:

How about having a little more respect for the people who pay your salary.

On second thought, keep it up. It's good for my company's business. :D

Look Im just saying, if it is such a big deal take them yourself. Dont sit on FI biotching about what the airline will or wont tell you.

It is like captains duties, you can delegate it (or pay someone else to do it), but it does not relieve you of the responsibility of acomplishing said duties.

I personally would never trust any airline with my children alone. I would do the right thing and take them myself. Rag me all you want. I still believe in doing things right.
