lil - what are you actually asking here? Is it do you need parental permission to take others' children on a plane?

You haven't stolen the have you? If so then it's probably not ok. however if there between 12 & 15 they would be classed as unaccompanied minors if they flew by themselves, but with you they would be fine. At 17 there should be no problems at all.

pardon me everyone,im half asleep,burning the candle at both ends...

Im taking,nephew and 2 other 17 yr olds,away with me,no they arent stolen...

so,looks like its fine then....

dont need permission,they just need I.D. x 2/3 as per usual.

I Just havnt taken notice of this(the age thing) before,havnt needed to.

You would need a covering letter from their parents if you were taking them into some other countries.

Lilyana, we had a meet on Saturday - right in the middle of the storm! Ellenwillow was kind enough to organise it (as she did with the previous one). I'm not talking for anyone else, but I think about every 6 months is good to catch up.

Hopefully you can attend the next one?
