    Hi @Gogo21, sorry to hear you're feeling nervous- I was really worried the first time I travelled with my transit wheelchair too.

    Have you talked to the special assistance department of the airline you're travelling with? They're the best point of contact for explaining your needs to, and they should be able to tell you exactly what will happen during the process.
