I went abroad in September to a hot country. Knowing that the sun can flare my lupus, I made sure to pack sensible clothing to cover me completely.( gone are the days when I just needed swimwear and a sarong during the day.) my suitcase was much heavier than allowed. I had closed in shoes and trainers as I even have to keep my feet covered in the sun. As well as all the prescribed meds and creams I had a spare walking stick too. The airline in question charged me £80 to fly with my luggage. My husband explained that I needed all my luggage and my disability. They said that unless I had a " disabled dispensation, there was nothing they could do". I am going away again in May and want to avoid this scenario again. Has anyone applied for this, even if I could get help with all the pills and potions it would be a help?
