UA UM got him on the right flight they offer the UM service on, to EWR. UA doesn't offer UM service for random foreign airlines, despite the actions of a rogue checkin agent.

Did you verify the kids passport was signed?



1) UA didn't issue the ticket.
2) UA doesn't necessarily get the pax age at booking/ticketing time.

I've noticed a number of cases where UA flight status defaults to a B738, probably since they have a lot of them and aircraft types similar to them (B737-B739, A319/A320) and are using legacy CO...

Same issue as the smaller 787s without the Polaris seat, where they wedged the 2006-era lie-flat businessfirst seat in the same 6 abreast config as the 777 into the smaller cabin.
