The staff at the gate at Austin airport (Kathy) was very helpful and accommodated my need due to compromised vision. Also was given wheel chair transport to baggage claim at O'Hare, which was great because that's a big airport (I also use a cane for greater stability, so this was great. I didn't even have to ask for it.) The staff who pushed my wheelchair was actually a ticket agent who was helping out. She was very kind. And again, can't say enough good about Kathy at ABIA who saw my need, had me sit in the handicapped waiting, and let me board first. American Airlines is the only airline I use. I don't fly often. Maybe once per year. But I appreciate American and will only use American when possible- which has been always so far. Sky Cap at ABIA was also very good, helpful, and friendly. Thank you.
