Airlines Can Damage Wheelchairs

So, this has always been a contentious issue, in my opinion. I am convinced that its not just airlines causing the problems! But also other forms of couriers. People dont believe me!Especially, when I tell them how many mobility scooter batteries are broken. Thus by clumsy courier driver. Frighteningly, I believe that this is what happens on the airline internal transport systems before they actually get to the planes cargo hold.

In my opinion then I cant see how they can possibly move about. Say once they are loaded onto the plane. Importantly, it is just a little care and attention that is needed. So, when the wheelchairs are being handled by the airline baggage handlers. This article is very interesting. Importantly, perhaps you should have a look if you are going to travel by air with your precious wheelchair.

Now, for the first time, major commercial airlines must tell the DOT each month how often they gate-check wheelchairs and scooters, as well as how often passengers report those devices as damaged, lost, delayed or stolen.
