  • I have sorted out all the paperwork for my return flight from my destination in good time.
  • When booking my flight I informed the travel agency or Lufthansa of my limited mobility and told them of my special wishes. These could include: a special diet and the use of special facilities and services (e.g. wheelchair collection, taking a guide dog with me, etc.).
