It is sad after all these years they haven’t come up with better ways to handle passengers with wheelchairs. I couldn’t even imagine the struggle that it is to fly with a disability. And to entrust an airline with something so vital, and expensive, as a wheelchair. Truly scary when you think about it.

USPS is raising rates on packages during the holiday season – Washington Post

The best option for shipping stuff for the holidays, if you can do it, is to have the store ship it directly. I still use USPS for most of my stuff since they are still often the cheapest, although not always the most dependable.

  1. The only way they can actually allow wheelchairs to travel better is to make aisles wider and remove seats. Nothing else actually makes
    Much of a difference. But both of these are non-starters.

    • I feel like they could set up seating for people with disabilities or wheel chairs like they do in every other public space. But airlines wouldn’t want to potentially give up that seat / revenue etc. So another non start unfortunately.
