Another tipping question - Airport wheelchair assistance

I tip $5 at our local airport, where distances aren't great. For international connections, $5 to $10 depending on how long the lines are. Last April I gave the attendant $20--we were stuck in an Immigration line for over an hour, and then we had to travel two more terminals to get to our ongoing flight.

Attendants at de Gaulle don't expect tips. But I've never had anyone turn down a little thank-you for extra service.

Whenever we had a wheelchair for a family member it seems we had to change terminals too. So, $10 at a minimum depending on time and distance.

Funny enough, one flight to EWR from a Munich. We got off the plane and the wheelchair and assistant were waiting. It was just a bit over 20 minutes and were were in our car (we left it at the airport) ready to go home! The assistant whisked us through everything like nothing.
