I called up the Airline to ask them what documentation I needed for MiniWarrior to fly with me (as he has no photo ID).
While on the phone with the agent, I asked her if she could tell us what seats we had as Orbitz function of allowing me to choose a seat wasn't working when I purchased them online.
"I'm sorry Ma'am. We don't have two seats left that are together."
"Um. No. I am traveling with my son. I need to be sitting by him."
"I'm sorry. There are no more seats together."
"No. No no no. You don't understand. My son is Autistic, has never flown before and needs to be beside me or he will flip out!"
"One moment while I put you on hold."
I sat on hold long enough for me to grind through my first layer of tooth enamel, feeling my heart pound inside my chest while pictures of passengers lunging frantically for the exits--mid air--after being a captive audience for 4 hours of MiniWarriors diatriba on Mantis and frog growth specifications--spun around my head like a bad 70's 8 track tape.
The lady came back onto the phone and had not only found us two seats together, but had placed us right behind First Class in the handicap seats for all 4 of the planes we would be traveling to and from Houston.
Thank you, US Airways! That was an awesome move on your part :)
One step closer to EWO time, Peeps.
