I am looking for a Travel Companion for my Mother and Father .
They speak Tamil and not very fluent in English. Help needed when they are at the Port of Entry, Boston.

Travel is on Thursday, Nov 27th (Lufthansa - 01:50 AM) from Chennai - Frankfurt - Boston.
If anyone travelling on the same date and willing to help, please send me a private message.

I will really appreciate your help.

Thanks.

I know from Delhi, Lufthansa carries indian crew who can converse in local languages i.e Punjabi. I observe lots of travelers using this facility when I fly. So your folks should be fine uptill Frankfurt. Maybe you can put in request for airport assistance? , where the airline provides wheel chair with someone to push and one of them can avail this facility. Thereby ensuring they get moved to correct gate at Frankfurt.

Stop bumping this thread. Post in websites like sulekha and other places. Tons of people come everyday and manage. believe me, it is easy. Not knowing language is even better - they will find more help and assitance.

Come on man, your parents have raised you and I can understand the concern due to your love and affection, but it is not that difficult situation - it is very very rare that someone actually gets lost in airports. Your parents have lived atleast 2 and a half your life and are better experienced than you and will definitely manage.

Please do not get me wrong, like, I wish they find someone to travel with, but bumping this thread on top so many times, may just not be the best thing to do :)

Best option , get them on Wheel chair and airline will assist them.
Some airlines do this for little charge , some required request on medical ground .
But as mentioned by chanduv23 , it is not that difficult or en-route they will find people who can help them.
Good Luck
