. Need to know.
The following question is from Andy Michelberger -
We would like to bring my mother-in-law, who lives in Germany, over
for a visit next year. She is confined to a wheelchair. Her doctor
cleared her to come. What I would like to know, is it against
company  regulation to buy a Family Fair or to give a  Buddy Pass to
a  handicapped person. Thank you very much for your effort.
Andy Michelberger:-}
Linda Kwoon - Industry Travel has responded -
1. The mother-in-law is eligible for Family Affair and will be
treated like a revenue passenger requiring medical requirements,
such as, oxygen, or an attendant, etc.

2. The mother-in-law will be eligible for the partner program
providing that oxygen or an attendant is not required.

3. If she is confined to a wheelchair, it is not recommended that
she travels on a standby partner ticket.  Considering the
last-minute boarding situation necessitating her to be rushed to
the gate, inability to obtain an advance seat when travelling in
a  wheelchair, she should be travelling on a positive space
ticket,  i.e., Family Affair.
Regards,  Linda

more, Toronto's Lester B. Pearson International Airport now has a
grand total of 18 Express Check-in kiosks. The new kiosks are located
in front of Rapidairr check-in, Domestic Maple Leaf Lounge,
Flight-Operations Pilot Lounge, and In-Flight Service Communications

reviews. Customers and employees say it's fast and convenient_and they

. Found on the internet.
MILLENNIUM BUGS TAKE TOLL EARLY: Many airlines are having a tough time
finding anyone who wants to fly on New Year's Eve.  Denver airport plans
to shuttle travelers into 2000 through just one of three concourses.
The rest will be closed -- they don't have easy access without
electricity.  But not to worry, there's a generator for the one they're
leaving open.
