Need assist with Walking but dont really need wheelchair are Golf Carts Available and how do you get this assistance?
The golf carts are for people with wheelchair assistance. If you can walk, the walk distances at DCA are very short.
Our departure window begins at 4:15 am on Monday May 29. Our car will drop us off with our bags. Will airport personnel push wheelchair to the security checkpoint and to the gate? We're on American Airline flight 1567. If special arrangements are necessary, please provide the phone number. Can our driver park outside at door long enough to bring us in?
Yes, the Wheelchair will take you though security and to the gate. This is not any airport or airline's website. To arrange wheelchair service you need to contact American.
I will surprise a friend he will arrive in terminal C where exactly may I go? He's coming from AMERICAN AIRLINES
Thanks
You'll have to meet him at the baggage claim or the exit of security. If he doesn't know to look for you I think it's very likely you'll miss him.
How far do I have to walk from AA check-in to Gate 44?
Maybe 5 minutes after you get through security.
Do not want to walk to terminal. Any golf cart transport? Need to depart & arrive American Airlines terminal.
If you are handicapped request wheelchair service by contacting your airline.
We arrive at Terminal C at 855am and our gate closes in terminal B at 927am. Will we be able to make it in time?
No, that's probably not enough time unless your first flight arrives quite a bit early.
I am picking up a passenger flying on American Airlines from NY at Terminal B. Which door number is closest to where she will exit (and where I can pick her up outside)? She does not have a cellphone with her.
I recently broke my toes and I'd prefer not to take a wheelchair. How long is the walk from the American counter to the respective terminal. I don't have my gate as yet.
All walks at DCA are fairly short.
Are there still people who work for the airlines to help a person arriving at the airport inside to the counter if you have multiple bags ( or a cart outside to help you).
There is curbside check in for some airlines at some airports. There are not skycaps.
Pls change colors - VERY HARD to see difference between oramge & red
