NBC NATIONAL NEWS — There's some bad news for parents flying with their small children.
United Airlines says it will no longer allow them to board early if they are flying coach.
The airline made the change last month, joining a handful of other carriers, including American Airlines.
A United spokesman says the airline believes the change will simplify the boarding process.
The airline still allows passengers with children traveling in first class or business class to board early.
