Anyway, some of my reaction is because a lot of folks think I'm BSC to not make my boy fly alone, so I've spent the week fighting the opposite battle--trying to make people see that sometimes it's reasonable to accompany a minor on a flight, even if it's expensive and possibly unnecessary. My son has mild autism, and I really don't want to put him in a bad situation, where he may react atypically and there's no one around to explain and intervene on his behalf. Yes, he'd be on a direct flight and probably would be fine and it would be good for him to face his fear, but you know what? I'm not rolling the dice on that one.

FWIW, I think going with his was the right thing to do.
