But there are a special group of people that has different needs. Women with a baby, disabled passengers, obese person. What you have to now about your status in the time of the flight? Do you have any extra rights because of your condition? Let's find out.
Women with child
When you have a small child, you need to be prepare wisely for the flight. First of all, what is the age of it? because if it is smaller then couple months, in some situations it need to travelling with a medical certificate, cause airline company need to make certain that it is ok to travel for it. You should take it from your doctor, but remember, trip for such a small creature might be very dangerous. If it is older, you just need a passport for him, cause since several years, all the people, even smallest one, need to have any ID to cross board by airplane. You could wait for it couple weeks, so be aware of it when you are buying your ticket (lot.com/us/en/passengers-travelling-with-a-medical-certificate). And speaking of which, infants under two years old, are flying on their mother's laps, their tickets cost like 10% of whole prize. Also, you may take a special chair for it, but in that case, you will pay common money. You are able to feed your infant on board, with your own, home made meal. To take it with you, you need to declare it in the time of your security check. Guards could look at it carefully, and perhaps you will need to taste it or give it to your child. It help them to make certain, that it is not any kind of poison or toxic material, which could be use to take over an airplane by any terrorist you might travels with. If you get a perambulator for your child, you don't need to pay additional for it. Flying attendant will put it into the cabin on the time of your trip.

If you are really obese tourist, no airline corporation should ask you to buy two ticket, cause it is against the regulations. But for your own convenience, in some cases it will be needed. When you aren't sure if you would fit into a chair, call emergency center and ask them that question. When it is arguably that seat will be to tiny, you can buy different ticket near to the first one, plenty of the time the price could be smaller. If you are a handicap human who travels with a wheel chair, don't be scared. Stewardess would help you to get inside the plane with no problem, they could take care of your vehicle during your travel, you don't need take any guider with you. Also, wheel chair is part of your carry on baggage, you won't be charged extra for it (http://lot.com/us/en/disabled-passengers). If you are wanting to travel into your stretcher, there is no issue either. But remember, you must to get to know about this situation earlier, cause one airplane could have only several disabled passengers like you on a board.


Touring by airplane is nothing scary, also if you are travelling with a medical certificate or you are on a wheel chair. Stewardess are very professional, so you do not need to be worry, that someone will treat you in a wrong way.
