Here are some tips and information on what major airlines do for travelers who need extra support when flying.
When flying with United, call the airline's disability desk (18002282744) 48 hours in advance of travel if you'll be traveling with an assistive device so they can ensure your device can be used in flight. Any special needs you have should be mentioned when you make your reservation so the airline staff can do their best to help you. This includes the need for assistance in getting to your gate, boarding, getting to your seat, deplaning or connecting.
Depending on the type and age of the aircraft, accessible features of Delta's aircraft include movable armrests of seats, wheelchair space, onboard wheelchairs and, on larger airplanes, wheelchairaccessible washrooms. Depending on the aircraft, they also provide seats with a movable aisle armrest for passengers needing to transfer from a boarding wheelchair to their own seat more easily.
When traveling with US Airways, if you have a mobility disability and need special seating, call 8004284322 at least 24 hours before your scheduled departure to ensure your needs are met. Besides seats with movable armrests, the airline also provides seats with more legroom for passengers with an immobilized leg. The airline can also provide an onboard wheelchair but let them know 48 hours in advance if you need one.
If you're flying with Southwest and you need a wheelchair at the airport, or need other special assistance, it's best to inform the airline in advance, or as soon as you arrive at the airport so your requests can be fulfilled as quickly as possible. On each aircraft, a small wheelchair that can fit down the aircraft aisle is available at every gate and can be used if you need help for getting into your seat.
