When you come off a flight you’ll often see a row of wheelchairs waiting to assist passengers. There are some people who request wheelchair assistance when they’re just fine, because they want the airport priority. They’ll get a better seat on Southwest Airlines, or at least ensure on other airlines that they have overhead bin space for their luggage.
There are people, though, who couldn’t fly without systems in place to assist them along the way. It’s an underappreciated part of air travel. What would you do if you were pushing a wheelchair and the passenger… fell out? What if you were a flight attendant, standing on the jetway, and saw this happen to one of your passengers?
And what if it was all a prank? This passenger deals with a lot more in life than I do each day, yet manages to maintain a great positive outlook and has fun with the people he meets. I find that inspirational.
