I use a mobility scooter each time that I fly. I also have a walker and walker holder attached to the rear of the scooter. Southwest always lets me take my scooter all the way to the gate. They are very accommodating. Even though my scooter does disassemble, the gate attendant usually asks me to keep the key and show them how to put it in neutral. Also, I have a pin that I can pull in the rear that I can quickly unattach my walker and holder. They usually have me to do this. Upon on arriving at my destination, I wait on the plane until my scooter is brought back to the gate. So even though you may board first, you will most likely be last to get off. So plan accordingly. Southwest is is top notch when it comes to accommodating people with disabilities. They are always my airline of choice and have the very best crews, policies, and fees. Southwest Airlines has made traveling with a disability a pleasure instead of a burden. Rest assured, they will take care of you!
