If you’ve ever travelled with someone in a wheelchair, you know the chaos that comes with that experience. Let’s face it: travel is rarely accessible. Join hosts Elena and Brooke as they discuss travel via plane after disability, Brooke’s journey home from a long term trip to Italy, Elena and Dan’s 13 hour layover hell and upcoming wedding plane trip, and the women’s thoughts on the current state of the airport and airline industry when it comes to serving people (and their caregivers) with a physical disability. They also present some low cost, functional solutions for airports to deploy to make the journey of a wheelchair user that much easier and more relaxing. If you’re considering airline travel, listen up! There’s lots of things you can learn from the WAGS of SCI’s experiences to avoid issues that are preventable, and there are plenty of things you can do yourself in your local area to help speed up the evolution of airlines/airports.
