    Great points. And hopefully the staff will be understanding that these are policies, not laws, and therefore be willing to bend them on the rare occasion they need too.

    With the battery comments, hopefully the wheelchair industry can work with the airline industry and come up with standards together. I don’t know how many times I’ve had to tear my chair apart to show someone (who knows nothing about wheelchairs!) my batteries etc…

    I think every airport should have a mobility device engineer on staff.
