Ludacris and Karma Bridges

Rapper Chris "Ludacris" Bridges is steaming mad after Atlanta-based Delta Airlines accused him of abandoning his daughter, Karma, at Atlanta Hartsfield airport.

A source tells gossip tabloid TMZ that Luda and Karma, who is 14, landed in Atlanta at 6:00 a.m. after a flight from LAX in Los Angeles. The plan was for Karma to continue on to New York on a connecting flight out of Atlanta. But there was a layover between flights.

Luda had to be somewhere else that morning, so he left his daughter in the very safe first class lounge to wait for her flight. No one can enter the first class lounge unless they have a first class ticket.

But that's when things got a little sketchy.

Delta reps called Luda on his cell phone and told him that unaccompanied minors are not allowed to fly alone without a supervising adult. The airline said it would provide adult supervision for Karma at an additional cost of $100.

According to the source, Luda booked Karma's first class ticket himself (which he normally does not do), and he received confirmation that Karma could fly alone as long as an adult (in this case her mother) was waiting at the destination airport to pick her up.

Luda didn't pay the fee because Karma missed her flight to New York. So Luda went back to the airport, picked Karma up and they went home -- but not before he gave Delta reps an earful.

Anyone who knows Luda knows he's definitely not a cheapskate.

According to TMZ, Luda was "shocked and angry" that Delta changed its rules regarding unaccompanied children.

      Why would you leave a minor alone anyway? Famous or nah, what if she had run off or sonething then what? He shouldn't be worried about the fee but more about leaving his dauther alone. Ain't no difference in him leaving his daughter in the airport and man man leaving his baby in the car outside the courthouse. It shouldn't be about a fee it should be about principle, stay with your child. I am almost certain it isn't like he had a show to get to.

    • kamadiva

      Hi Gang...just popping in (working like a Hebrew, but still lurking). My son has been flying since he was 10months old until he was 18 and each and EVERY Time, I had to stay with him until he boarded the flight with a Flight Attendant escort and once he arrived at his destination, he had to be turned over to an adult (listed on his ticket). This cost was additional to his flight and he has ONLY flown Delta and Southwest (fee may have been less on Southwest). These rules AIN'T NEVER CHANGED since 1993 (when my son first flew alone)

      Why would ANY parent leave their child alone in a place where there are thousands upon THOUSANDS of people in direct access? Is he for REAL!? Luda need to have a seat and be thankful he had his daughter to go back to and pick up! :facepalm: These nuccas ain't right in the head, I tell ya! But that ain't none of my business!

    • sassyshe

      Something is not right in this story. I flew for years as an unaccompanied minor locally and internationally and we do the same with my nephew. First thing that minor cannot be checked in unless it is at the counter and then you paty that $100-$150 unaccompanied minor fee. So its either the airline waived the fee in LA and someone did not code something in the system and she was left alone by the airline in Atlanta or Luda traveled with her to Atlanta and then left her alone, being cheap and hoping that because hes Luda they were going to let her board by herself. If he really wanted to save some dollars he should have just bought a coach ticket and pay the unaccompanied minor fee where she would have automatically been upgraded to first class

      I love y'all but... reading is fundamental.

      If he was strictly being cheap.. he wouldnt have bought a FIRST class ticket for her to travel to NY. Them ishts alone is enough to make you think twice. All flights for unaccompanied minors MUST be direct. So they must've flew into ATL together and she was going to catch a separate flight to NY. Given the fact that the cutoff IS 14.. its sketchy and depends on the rep who booked the ticket.

      We do it annually.

      Besides I know some of "us" (not me though) have left y'all kids at home alone for more than fo' hours!!

    • Crickett

      Delta has playrooms for unaccompanied minors with vending machines toys, televisions and supervision. When my son was 14, he sat up in there 6'1 at the kiddie table, but at 15 he begged to fly Airtran because they were not as strict. A 14yo is in high school, and I'm sure she has been flying for years and can navigate her way through the airport and in case there is a problem she has a cell phone. How are children supposed to go away to college in a couple years if they never experienced responsibility.

      With all the money Luda fronted for the first class ticket, good business sense would have told Delta to waive the fee.
      So they lost thousands of dollars (1st class is refundable most times) because of $100. No wonder the airlines are going under. Poor customer service.
      14 is plenty old enough to fly alone.

      Anyone who knows Luda knows he's definitely not a cheapskate. He is a very responsible father. He left Karma in the first class lounge which is a very safe area. You can only enter that area with a first class ticket. He picked her up because she missed her flight, not because he didn't want to pay the $100.

    • sochlo504

      My sister and I flew alone to Korea when I was 11 and she was 15 and we got to our destination just fine. 14 is not too young to fly alone especially a domestic flight. Of course I decided to try a new dish, ordered Indian curry chicken, and had the runs on a 13 hour flight but that could've happened to anyone at any age...

    • http://www.swedishsoul.com lovebites

      i flew all the time to New york and North Carolina alone since 13. Also Delta has a bad habit of changing rules last minuet to make more money. I don't think LUda is cheap because he did pay for a first class ticket which im sure cost him 10000 dollars at least.
