Unaccompanied kids on Frontier flight end up in hotel with airline employee, parents say

Carter Gray, 9 and his sister Etta, 7, were traveling as unaccompanied minors on a Frontier airline flight from Des Moines, Iowa, to Orlando, chaperoned by a Frontier employee, when severe storms forced the plane to divert to Atlanta. Carter and Etta’s parents say they received a text message from their son saying a Frontier employee would take them to a hotel to stay overnight, but the parents are now speaking out, warning other parents to double check airline rules about unaccompanied minors.
