Airplane use

Airplane use
Hello all, anyone had to fly for a long duration and had to use CPAP during flight. I'd like to here your experience. I'm flying to Australia from LA next month. I guess I should get on the phone and start asking questions.

RE: Airplane use
Your experience may depend on the particular aircraft you're on. Some have power outlets at every seat, others are more limited. Which airline / destination / class? Do you know the actual plane you'll be flying on?

Check with the airlines under their "passengers with disabilities" section for their information on using it onboard. If their wheels touch down on US soil, they have to allow you to use it when you fly out. If it is a non-US carrier when you leave and head home, you should still be able to use it but check that, too.
