    Hi, I don't know if someone has said this before but I'm going to say it anyway. In my experience if you request wheelchair assistance for the US they take you straight through immigration without queuing. They will help you through bag claim and all the way to your next transport. Once I had a lady waiting with me for a friend to get her car even though I said I was fine by myself. My disability is invisible but maybe she noticed. I usually leave a small tip as I leave the airport, but you don't have to. They are working for a salary. Yours, Ann

    Some airlines will also gate tag your mobility device/aid as well as thermal/bag tag it =)
    getting bulk heads may not always work as babies who need cots COULD or MAYBE prioritised. You would however be placed into an aisle seat and some airlines/aircrafts have arm rests that do move. (yes the ones on the aisles) however the bulk head ones won't as they hold the tv and or tray tables

    I learnt the hard way last year that whenever you are booking travel with at least two separate flights towards your destination, don’t always book the same side of the plane for each flight. It’s 3 flights from where I live in Australia to Orlando and I put myself on the left hand side for all 3. Turns out I have a tendency to sit tilted so I did 18 hours seated slightly to the left so my back was killing me by the time I reached Orlando. My upcoming trip next week alternates between left and right so fingers crossed it helps.

    It’s actually fun travelling with a wheelchair as my sister is actually disabled so it’s actually fun going with her compared to without her for example we get on the plane first however sometimes it can be difficult but we get through it together 🥰

    Your daughter is so cute..her antics make me laugh. I got a BTK amputation Jan 2018. I would never travel by air like you. Be so afraid of being embarrassed in front of others. I haven't got over that I was so stupid in my diet to lose my foot in the 1st place. So happy that you spend the time making these videos.
