How much to tip wheelchair attendant at the airport?

Jump to last reply

Have been flying a lot this year domestically and internationally. Due to disability, often (but not always) have to request wheelchair at the airport (think Atlanta, JFK domestic/international) if distances are far. Is there a standard on tipping the attendant? In July, I had someone assist with going from international to domestic terminal at JFK and luggage retrieval. My DD pushed the luggage carrier, attendant pushed me. I tipped him $15 and he looked very pi$$ed off. In Atlanta, I had to be pushed from one far terminal, via subway, to another and tipped $10 and I thought the attendant was going to kiss my feet, she was so happy. Is there a standard rule of thumb? Is there a ratio for amount of time or distance? I want to ensure I do the right thing, as I don't believe the attendants make much money and would like to properly compensate them.

Thanks for your advice!
