Some foreign airlines will move male passengers away from seats next to minors

Here’s a weird little story.  A couple of foreign airlines, such as Virgin Australia, have policies not allowing adult males to sit next to (unrelated) minors traveling alone. 

No US carrier has such a policy.  But a British carrier was reportedly sued and the passenger won.

The ACLU was not even willing to comment on the measure, although maybe because it doesn’t affect US airlines. 

A male passenger who had reserved a specific seat and perhaps paid for it could lose the assignment.
The story was discussed on CNN this morning.
