Separate email for minors?!

I attempted to register my son for a SkyPass account as he will be flying with me to Asia via Korean Air in Feb. Apparently, he needs his own email address in order to have a SkyPass account... he is 2 years old. Is there no way for this program to register 2 users to the same email address as with so many other mileage programs?

Ah, that may be more helpful. I had spoken with their customer service who told me I should simply just, "sign up a new email account to use for him." I explained that I wasn't going to create an email account for a 2 year old, which would necessitate me checking two emails. Emirates, American, etc. all have the ability to assign multiple rewards numbers to a single email. This seems like a restriction in their system and they neglected to account for minors in their planning.

If you're a gmail user, you can add a string after a plus sign before the @, which will make the email address different enough for the site, but will route the email back to the same email address. So, the email address looks like "[email protected]" - the email will go back to [email protected], but you log into the website using [email protected]. This is the approach that DHS recommends when signing up for GOES access for minors.

Here's the documentation from Google on the subject: https://gmail.googleblog.com/2008/03...from-your.html
