My husband and I have booked flights to Rome at the end of March, for 4 nights for my birthday. I actually booked it online last November. It’s a trial run for my 60th next year…any excuse…no plans to be in this country if I can help it…horrible number…60
My husband has finally, after much pestering, persuaded me to add on special assistance…plenty of time to cancel it though and I will if my stress levels continue to rise.
This special assistance includes help through the airport and lift on/off the aircraft seat…lift for goodness sake!!! My husband can’t push me through the airport, due to his abdominal problems, so it will be a member of staff.
I can walk with a stick for short distances but rely on my husband, who takes me out in the car. I can’t stand around for long due to the psoriatic arthritis…painful leg joints.
We are flying from Manchester airport. It’s a few years since I have flown from this airport and I was fit and well.
I have a disabled friend who flies frequently from Manchester and also suggests it would be a good idea.
Have any of you guys used this facility? If so, would you mind sharing your experience please. It would be much appreciated
