In Conversation: Wheelchair travel with John Morris

in conversation use this oneJohn Morris from WheelchairTravel.org joins RGN deputy editor John Walton for an update on how airlines, airports and other parts of the aviation industry are serving passengers with reduced mobility.

What are John’s experiences using a wheelchair while traveling? Are airlines living up to their obligations? Why are some newer business class seats — including Qatar Airways’ Qsuite — a big problem for some disabled passengers? Are lavatory facilities sufficient?

What is the airport experience like for wheelchair users, and how can it improve? Where is the best practice for boarding and disembarking the aircraft? And how does aviation compare with other parts of the transport and travel industry: hotel rooms, hotel shuttles, airports, taxis, and ride-hailing apps like Uber and Lyft?

  1. John Morris, we would be more than happy to share our solution from transferring from wheelchair to aisle chair and from aisle chair to cabin seat using our easyTravelseat. Please take a look at easyTravelseat.com. I have Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 3 and full understand the processes of accessing and moving around the cabin with a physical disability and would be great to talk to you. All the best,
