Needing prompt wheelchair assistance - depends when the request was made?:huh: (Is 6 months ago when I bought the ticket enough, or should I have made the request sooner?:huh: )

2 weeks ago, I had a connection on American Airlines at DFW. I had previously requested wheelchair assistance. The airline agent met me on the jetway and took me to my departure flight. Because my arrival was in 1 terminal and my departure was in another (both on AA BTW), I had to transfer using the airport tram. Even with the airline employee assistance, by the time I got to the gate, it was already boarding! But now they either want to take that option away or start charging for it?:huh:

And they wonder why people hate flying?

Take it easy .......

Take the train instead and enjoy the ride!

The view is much better at 3 feet than it is at 30,000 feet!

Just to clarify...was it an airline employee that pushed your wheelchair, or a contracted service employee that the airline had to pay for?

Most large airports--including DFW--have a contracted service person pushing the wheelchairs.
