    I havent used it in the UK, but weve used it, both for me and for my grandma in the US

    Both times there was a person right outside the plane with an airport wheelchair and that person really knew his way it was fast and the service provided was excellent

    Does anyone know what happens about our luggage when we arrive in MCO we usually go through immigration, get our bags and then keep them. I'm assuming it's the same with assistance

    Thanks Mari, hmm, so we might have to try and manage with one bag then as he usually takes the cases and I take the cabin roll on and my bag on top of it.

    I spoke to a lovely lady at Virgin Special Assistance just now and she has booked me in for assistance on all legs of the trip. She said that at MCO I will be collected by someone with a wheelchair and Chris and I will then be escorted through immigration to the car rental with our cases.

    Just one more thing, do I tip the people that help or the person who pushes the wheelchair I don't know what the protocol is. I know you tip skycaps but I don't want to offend anyone either way, by tipping or not tipping.

    I know I tipped the wheelchair folks at both Albuquerque and Baltimore when I hurt my knee but I honestly don't remember how much. I want to say at least $5.00 in Albuquerque and probably more in Baltimore because he did more for me assistance wise. I would use my best judgement Wendy, based on the service you receive.

    Great thanks, I thought you probably did but I didn't want to offend anyone by tipping if it's not the correct thing to do.

    If the person is not allowed to accept tips then they will decline but should appreciate the gesture
