I am flying my 12 year old son from Sydney to Hong Kong in April with Cathay Pacific.
He has flown quite a few times before but always with family and feels a little anxious about the upcoming experience. He's a cautious kid and not overly mature or confident but not shy. He is now in Year 7 (first year of high school).
I want to prepare him for the experience. His father will take him to airport staff after which he will be cared for by ground and then flight staff. I will receive him in Hong Kong.
Can other parents or past UMs (now adult) offer me any suggestions or tips for preparing him and otherwise making this as easy as possible?
Thanks very much,
