Legal Smart: Kids flying alone

If you need to send your pint-sized traveler around the globe -- legal experts have some tips. They say children under five can't fly alone. But junior jet-setters from five to seven can with some guidelines.

"It must be a direct flight and it cannot be the last flight of the night in case they don't get out and no red eyes," legal expert Alison Triessl said.

Triessl says getting your children care in the air -- typically comes with a cost.  Most airlines charge between $50 and $150 each way for children to fly alone.
