    Lots of water and get up every so often to keep from getting stiff. I also bring a a travel pillow and a light lap blanket.

    Hi QTPie. Air travel can certainly be a little frightening for those with compromised immune systems. In this article Carla discusses traveling with RA, including avoiding getting sick: https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/living/pack-ra-go/. In addition, Kat offers tips for how to keep a smile on your face during air travel: https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/living/how-to-travel-on-an-airplane-and-keep-a-smile-on-your-face/. Good luck and happy travels, Richard (RheumatoidArthritis.net Team)

    You can call the airline and have a transport ready to take you to the next flight. The transport is often motorized but occasionally a person to take you via wheelchair. I am using it this year.
