I'm flying to Egypt in June with Thomson and paid more for extra legroom seats, as my legs become restless and twitch and I have to move them about - however we've now read that these seats are not available for disabled passengers as they are in the emergency exits and you need to be able bodied to open the door and not block the exit. Of course I could keep quiet about my disability as it isn't glaringly obvious, however, I am going to need assistance getting to the gate as it's so far to walk, and at the very least I would need to use my stick, so the flight attendants are going to see that I have mobility issues.
Just tried to ring Thomson but they're closed. An internet search suggests there are extra legroom seats for disabled passengers on some airlines, but no mention of Thomson specifically.
Just wondered if anyone has any experience or advice? I really need the extra leg room, but then I really need the assistance to the gate/my stick as well!
