Wheelchair Accesible Bathroom in Flight
« on: May 11, 2017, 10:56:01 AM »
Is there such a thing as a wheelchair accessible bathroom on an airplane? Interested in getting to Israel from NY (stopover OK) for a handicapped person.

Thanks

To answer the first part, definitely.  I've been in one.  It was on an airline that does not serve Israel, however.

How about from NYC to Europe? Europe to TLV is a short flight.

SeatGuru shows 2 wheelchair accessible bathrooms on UA's 77W.

The question is, what happens in the event of an equipment change to an aircraft without an accessible lav?

Take the next 77W flight?
Equipment swaps are very unlikely for the 77W as they would have to bump a large amount of business and coach passengers.
