Jetstar stops trip to see dad
A Christmas present turned to crushing disappointment after Jetstar refused to let a 12-year-old girl fly to see her father.
Ashleigh Harvey had been due to fly from Christchurch to Wellington yesterday morning but, despite getting a boarding pass without a hitch, she was told as she went to board that she was too young to fly alone.
Jetstar rules state that only "secondary school" students are allowed to fly as unaccompanied minors. Ashleigh starts secondary school in Christchurch later this month.
