    is coming. because it is George (accompanied by Bratt) who is coming. If it had been "Geroge and Bratt" it would have been are coming.

    the prevous one is right. the same examples are : I as well as my familly am going there by air. remember the subject is I.

    George is the subject, not George and Bratt, so the verb is singular.
    It should be written in parenthesis as:
    "George, together with Bratt, is coming to see me."

    But it is more natural to write:
    "George is coming to see me together with Bratt."
