When travelling o/s ordinarily I won't accept "meet and assist" because Sierra can't sit in the wheelchair and they refuse to carry the car seat or bags, so there is no point.
While travelling in December, the Qantas crew suggested I sit in the wheelchair and nurse Sierra.
Hilarious!! I am this energetic woman who can't wait to get off the plane and walk a million miles an hour and there I was being wheeled around. The "meet and assist" crew took me from the plane, up the lift, through duty free (kindly stopping at the pharmacy for paracetamol) then back downstairs in the lift to the gate.
Sierra loved it! I held her in my arms and she looked up and smiled at me adoringly.
