US Airways said it changed three of its customer-service policies to align them with those of America West Airlines.
The carriers plan to merge this fall and will keep the US Airways name.
US Airways said effective Oct. 1, children ages 5 to 14 traveling as unaccompanied minors will be accepted only on nonstop flights, and that the fee for unaccompanied minor travel will be reduced to $40.
In a second change, live animals will no longer be accepted for travel as checked baggage or cargo.
Also, passengers needing supplemental oxygen will no longer be able to purchase it on US Airways flights but the airline is working on a new policy related to the service.
The airline said exceptions will be made in the policies for those with reservations made before today.
