San Diego

Flying "the Luv Airllines" -- Southwest -- on flight # 2407 to San Diego was easier than most boarding procedures. It was the service & attention to detail, not any secial technical fixes, that made it so smooth.

However, I think it didn't seem so straightforward to my seatmate and ZFellow Theresa Gonzales, Director of One Economy - San Jose. This is the first time we've traveled together. She had never encountered all the negotiating, educating, and boundary-setting that is necessary to board afely and assure that equipment is not lost or damaged. Once we got settled in our seats she asked, "Don't you ever stop working?" Unfortunately, the answer was, "No." With a disability you are always teaching a class about yourself -- or risking being treated as luggage; "the wheelchair."
