Are Airlines Purposely Splitting Up Families to Make More Money?

In June 2016 Congress added an amendment, the Families Flying Together Act, to the FAA Reauthorization Bill. The amendment states that airlines should seat any child under the age of 13 “adjacent to the seat of an accompanying family member over the age of 13, to the maximum extent practicable, at no additional cost," however the FAA has not yet implemented a way to enforce the Act and has not setup ramifications for airlines if they do not comply.
