Unaccompanied Minor

This summer we will be sending our 14 yo from either ZRH or FRA to SIN.
Best price options appear to be CX (via HK), Etihad (via ermm). Both coming in around 650 EUR, direct with LH, SQ, LX is nearer 950 and well, 300 is his spending money so...

I am aware that both airlines say a 14 yo doesnt need the escort service but for his mothers sake, we're looking at that as our preferred option. The question is, have you (or probably your kids) any experience with these airlines as unaccompanied minors and, particularly, during lay overs. CX and Etihad have between 2 and 4 hours between connections so where are the kids put during this time? Do they wonder the airport collecting tax free chocolate or are they locked in a cage with other minors and left to a Darwinian fight over control of the one working Xbox controller?

Thanks for your thoughts on the question and/or any other guidance suggestions.
