Tipping the wheelchair attendant at the airport

Jump to last reply

My husband has very limited walking capacity. We came into the Miami airport last week and AA had an attendant with a wheelchair awaiting our arrival. The man worked for a company that had a contract with AA, he was not an AA employee. He was wonderful. He took us a very long way to passport checking, then to baggage claim. Waited 1/2 hour with us until our luggage finally came, and then took us to the Delta counter for our airline switch to Delta to go on to Orlando. Then got us a Delta attendant to take us the rest of the way. He spent about an hour with us.
Sorry, long story, but I wanted to convey the extent of the service. Are there any guidelines for tipping these attendants? The service was invaluable to us.
