Lufthansa Airbus A330-300 reg. D-AIKI will take us to Munich MUC tonight!
We are all set for our Lufthansa flight back to Munich. Check in process went smooth as well as security check.
We are now having something to eat and drink in the Saga business lounge at Miami Airport. Very nice!
Robert at Heathrow Air Ambulance have been trying all day to arrange a transport to Miami Airport for me and Caroline. No wheelchair accessible buses is available so the only transport he could get for us is an ambulance. Well, it’s better than nothing!
Me and Caroline are onboard the bus that will transport us to Miami Beach.
The Miami Metrobus number 150 runs between Miami International Airport MIA and Miami Beach. The Metrobuses is wheelchair accessible with a ramp and the driver will assist you to get to the wheelchair designated seat in the bus.
You reach the Metrobuses by taking the MIA Mover train (wheelchair accessible) from the airport terminals to the airports central station where the buses runs from.
Yesterday I tried to book Super Shuttle airport transfer between Miami Airport MIA and our hotel Holiday Inn Oceanfront at Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, and got this message:
So now we need to find out a Plan B. We can either take a direct Miami Metrobus bus number 150 from Miami Airport MIA to Miami Beach, the so called Miami Beach Flyer that hopefully has low entrance wheelchair accessible buses, or a wheelchair accessible taxi.
From Miami Airport MIA website:
Patrons in need of accessible taxicab service should request it upon arrival at the ground level curbside area. Please allow a reasonable amount of additional time to call an equipped vehicle from the holding lot, located just outside the terminal area. Drivers will assist patrons with baggage.
The airport transfer shuttle service Super Shuttle (easily recognized by their blue vans) do have vans with wheelchair lift in Miami. The van carry 1 passenger in wheelchair and 10 seated passengers, and provide transport from and to Miami MIA Airport / Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood FLL. You can book wheelchair accessible vans online at their website www.supershuttle.com.
At the site you check the checkbox in the blue reservation box at the start page to book the wheelchair friendly van.
