My wife Yuzhen is from Chongqing and she speaks Chinese but only a little English. I am American. Soon I will send her to Chongqing cause we buy a house there. Now we live in Florida so she will have to change planes in New Jersey. I will send a letter with her for someone to help her change terminals and find her right flight but still I am concerned. Do you have any suggestions please?
Do you really want Yuzhen approaching strangers in Newark with a letter asking for help?
Talk to the airline. A gate agent can arrange for her to be transferred with an official airport escort to her connecting flight. The same thing is done for unaccompanied minors and foreigners travelling without a US visa.
Confucius Thanks for the info. The letter is for the airline people at the gate when she gets off the plane but you are correct. I will call the airlines and try to make the arrangements for some one to help her. Thanks that a was very good suggestion. Thanks.
