    I agree that splitting up the flight is a good idea.  You would also get to visit California!

    If you sit near the bulk-heads, you have room in front of you to stretch etc.  In a middle-seat, the seat in front of you is very close.  If you are rich, you could lay down in first-class!  That is my dream…

    Also, there is an on-board wheelchair for helping people get to the toilet.  You need to ask the cabin attendant to get it and it is very small, but transferring to it and going for a “walk” to the toilet (even if you don’t need to go) would at least help you change your position a few times.

    I also would love to use my wheelchair on the plane, but there are so many types of wheelchairs I’m not sure how they could standardize the lock-downs… but, yes, lets support them!
