Flying with POC

Jump to last reply

DH and friend Juan flew from Salt Lake City to Guatemala City last month with a POC. They got the documentation necessary for their AA flight (document from AA with doctor's signature) then their AA flight was canceled due to the snow storms and they were rebooked three days later on Delta. They then had to get a form from Delta sent back to Idaho for the doctor's signature. Now friend is going from Guatemala City to Lima, Peru, at the end of the month for two weeks. I found a great fare on Travelocity....down on Lacsa via San Jose and back on Taca via San Salvador. Both airlines are under the Avianca "alliance" so I called the call center in the city to ask what form was necessary for Juan to fly with the POC. I was told they needed what was basically the same documentation as required for the flight down. They went to the Avianca office in the city this morning and were told that no documentation was necessary. The agent even called the desk at the airport and was told the same thing. So now do I make myself crazy running back and forth to Guatemala City to try to get a form and have it signed just in case or do we just hope they are telling the truth and no form is necessary???
