James - are you sure it wasn't a small golden-haired child in danger of being mown down by a runaway horse and cart ? The fluffy kitten story stretches credulity to its utmost !!
I hope you're OK
, anyway (no matter how your injuries were REALLY caused *cough*scruffystudentlayaboutdrunkagain*cough*). If you were travelling on any other airline than FR
(this is not a dig, BTW), I'd say just phone them up, have them put a meet-and-assist/wheelchair WCHS request in the booking, indicating limited mobility, and that would be that. Nice people would meet you at check-in and wheel you/transport you in a golf-cart wherever you need to be. HOWEVER, I don't know if you can do that on FR
, and if you do, Mr O'Leary might want to charge you extra, who knows.
Are you making any tightish connections that might be put in jeopardy if you have to hobble from gate to gate unassisted ? Likewise, how much luggage will you be taking - crutches and luggage are not a good combination if you're by yourself. I guess if worst comes to worst, the least you can expect is to be pre-boarded to allow you to find a seat and get settled. No front or exit rows for limited mobility though !
So you see, let that be a lesson to you. If you'd have flown proper airlines in the past, you'd be too poor to afford
to get pissed
to rescue poor homeless kittens, and this wouldn't have happened !
Get well soon !
