    Thanks for the replies. I guess I could fly from Georgia to California first, then from California to Japan. That would almost split the trip in half. I could also bring my wheelchair cushion with me. I would still have to do pressure reliefs though. The only way that I can think of is to either lean forward and touch my toes, or to lean sideways onto the seat beside me. It would be a real hassle though. I read that there are some people fighting for their rights to sit in their wheelchair on the plane. That would be wonderful. Unfortunately many people don’t think the airlines will go for it. It really wouldn’t be that hard just to have tie downs installed similar to the ones that are in handicap vans. I wish the airlines would come through on this. I think I’ll look into supporting the people that are fighting for it.
