    Thanks for the walk through.  Although I love to travel, most of my travels have been for business not pleasure.  I’m a bit skeptical about asking for a valet or carer to travel with me on the company dime.  Since the training they want me in on is in Italy, my wife has strongly suggested that I will need someone her age to be that valet.

    I am a little concerned about getting from the wheelchair into the airline seat.  Do the arm rests of larger planes pivot up?  I think I could slide from one seat to another.  Even if I’m traveling with my wife, I don’t think she could lift me over the arm rest.

    Thanks again!
