walker on airplane
I've just purchased my first rollator. I don't need it most of the time however, I'm going to the West Coast later this month and I'm very worried about excess walking which I'll be doing at a work meeting.
As such, I've purchased a rollator. My question, though, is what do I need to do to carry this on the airplane or at least have it put into storage?
Thanks.First Symptom: May 2007

All airlines allow pre-boarding for the handicapped with or without walking aids. You go to your seat prior to everyone else, and the flight attendant stores your walking aid and returns it to you at the end of your flight. This might mean deplaning after everyone else, but that is minor inconvenience.
