Hi all. Just back from a week in the sun. As well as worried about SOB, I now have a hernia that has been causing me problems .... so I got assistance at the outward and inward airports .... wheelchair & lift to the plane door . Wow ! And fast track lane too so no standing about and first on the plane so no squeeze amongst people. If you can manage everything except the steps to the plane you can just have the lift. What an amazing service. And I was very pleasantly surprised at the lovely attitude of the general public - not patronising or pitying, just friendly and courteous...maybe the Paralympic effect is helping grow respect and visibility for people with disabilities. All in all, a good experience rather than an upsetting one. Best if you prebook to make sure wheelchair is available, and even someone to push it.
