Airline Travel


I am a T-10 incomplete as a result of a spinal dural AVF at C-1 about 4 ½ years ago. I’m preparing to fly across the country with one plane change so my manual wheelchair will be stored in the luggage compartment below the plane during flights.
Having heard from a couple people with manual wheelchairs that there could be damage to my wheelchair from being “put” into the baggage section of the plane, I’m curious what others have experienced and any suggestions for me toward keeping my wheelchair intact during this trip.
