Hoyt wrote on social media that she had a word with the flight attendant # 1 Bailey on flight number 1736 ( the first one rudely yelled at her and then passed off) . She was not informed of the policy for unaccompanied minors that extra fees is required to pay per child and no one was specifically assigned to be with the kids.
