10-year-old's flight canceled, but airline forgot to tell dad

The Associated Press

        COLUMBUS — For the second time in 10 days, America West Airlines has had to explain how a child flying alone arrived home hours later than scheduled.

        Cody Sherrill, 10, arrived in San Diego more than five hours late Tuesday night. He had been visiting relatives in Columbus and flew to San Diego after a stop in Phoenix.

        But no one called the boy's worried father, Brian, to tell him that the boy's flight from Columbus to Phoenix had been canceled and that he had been put on a later connecting flight, Patty Nowack, an America West spokeswoman said Thursday.


        On July 14, an 11-year-old girl traveling from Los Angeles to Detroit was placed on the wrong flight in Phoenix and ended up in Orlando, Fla. She eventually reached Detroit 18 hours later.
