I'm traveling with my son, to California for a wedding. It's been many years since I've been on a plane and a friend recomended Southwest, because of the cost, but also, they have a pre boarding option for those with a disability. I walk with a cane, although I use the motorized carts at stores becuase walking distances is difficult. I had multiple surgeries and need more, so can't bend my leg and need extra room. My friend suggested my son and I sit in 16D & F, so I we can have the extra room needed. Can I ask for a spacific seat, or bulkhead seating? Also, who boards first, people in wheel chairs or people with canes? Is this written in a rule roster or anything? Thanks!

@spacecoastbill uses terms, such as: "faking a medical condition", and "... cured mid air as 'miracle flights'.

Nice soundbites, spacecoastbill, but I've never seen such antics, as a nurse who frequently accompanies someone who needs preboarding. My question to you is, how could you possibly know someone's condition isn't legitimate? Is your jealousy so profound you disregard common empathy toward those less fortunate? WoW, is all I got...
