Traveling with someone who has mobility issues is challenging staff went out of their way to accomodate our needs at check in and during the flight especially allowing us privacy so i could help my husband change his Depends without inconviencing other passengers. At checkin we were directed to 1st class checkin as i was not only pushing a wheelchair but also our large bag that needed checking. Thank you for the understanding and always checking to see if our needs were met.
