For those of us lucky enough to travel to far-flung places on our planet, whether for business or pleasure, flying can prove to be a nightmare, especially if you suffer from a disability. With many planes designed to fly more like the 777ER (extended range), and Boeing developing a long-haul aircraft it would not require a hub, so no changes were made. plane, our flight time in the same cramp seat was high.
Some people obviously have the money to fly Business Class or First Class, which gives you more comfort, but for most disabled travelers, we are full of economic cargo.
So what can you do to improve your trip?
You can start from the point when you book your flight. Most long haul operators will not allow you to book seats in advance, so you can end up sitting anywhere on the day of your flight. The best thing to do here when your flight is confirmed, is to search the airlines web site for an internal flight plan for you to arrive, and write down the reference numbers for the seats. which is double, as it tends to have a lot of leg room, and is usually located near a toilet.
When you are done with this, contact the relevant company to let them know that you have a disability, tell them what your disabilities are, and tell them that it will help your health if they can hide the chairs you once knew . In most cases they will do so.
Another helpful tip if you have contacted the airline is to ask them a & # 39; special ' kaon. It is made by all airlines, and is from salt free meat, carbohydrate only fish, and so on. You can always find a list of these on airlines' web sites, so first check, if you can't find them, ask them a list. This service is extremely costly.
The reason you do this is that these & # 39; special foods & # 39; is provided before the usual meal, so you are after all, and do not have to line up for the toilet, as most of the other passengers are eating.
If you are looking for a better airline service, respect the authorities. I always give them a couple boxes of chocolates when we reach high cruising altitude, it always makes sure I get the desired treatment.
Best of all enjoy your flight and travel.
