My advice is once the booking has been made contact the airline and alert them to any help that you require as a disabled passenger. I have a meet and assist in place via Qantas which I arranged after booking my holiday to Melbourne.

I contacted Qantas via direct message on Twitter. If you book directly with the air-line, then make sure you ask them about what help and assistance they can offer to you and have a safe and stress free time flying.

I’m away now for a week. Taking time to re charge my batteries and have a fun relaxing time in Melbourne.
