Advice on flying
Hi, I have not flown for over 18 years. I have become disabled and not good health since then.
A friend has invited us out to south Spain (flying to Malaga).
I use a CPAP, I use a mobility scooter (I can walk short distances but think trying to run a car from a AAA battery). I have meds but nothing drastic (blood pressure (controlled), pain killers (codeine ), gout meds and vit D). So I do not expect any of them to be a problem (I have a copy of my prescription). I could manage with a carry on bag and my CPAP in it's bag. I have absolutely no idea about whats needed. All this about liquids etc is totally new to me.
To be honest it's stopped me going anywhere. I have problems with my cognitive abilities. Taking new info in is very draining for me(yet I can remember PI to 12 places! for example). It would be nice to take up the offers of going abroad and pos taking some trips to places. I understand that I will need to sort out a scooter or similar at the other end on trips, so we do not need to bother with sorting that. Wilst I am sure to people that fly often, it may sound straight forward, I only ever flew on business and never had to bother with any details(I was lucky).
So at the moment what I need is some one to put VERY simply what I need to do/have. What I need to tell the airline etc.
A simple 'list'. I don't need/want at this stage loads of options. Just 'do this, this and this. GO!
Can anyone help please?
