I am very concerned about DH and I being put in a exit row what are my chances are that some one would trade with us considering we are disabled and would not be able to lift the door

I am pretty sure guests with disabilities are not allowed to sit in the exit row because they cannot perform the duties required.

The plane wouldn't be able to leave if you were in an exit row.

100%. The flight attendants will not allow you to sit in an exit row.

All you have to do is say you can't do it and the flight attendant will reseat you. People love the exit row for the extra room, there will be no problem finding someone.

Exit row seating is highly desirable by many travelers due to the leg room. Depending on your airline, those seats will be long gone, taken by high volume customers....Plus what the previous people wrote! Relax, don't worry, and have a great time!

Families with young kids can't sit in the exit row either. One time when DD was young we got seated there...they had to ask these two guys to switch with us. I thanked the guys as we were moving, and they were actually super excited and thanking me because they were getting extra leg room. It was actually pretty funny.

So agreeing with PP, no worries whatsoever.

It's not about the chance, you will be moved. I think it'd be an awfully slim chance that you'd ever end up having to sit in an exit row anyways, but even if something weird happened, the flight attendants will ask if you can do whatever needs to be done. Once you tell them no, they'll find ppl. that will switch with you.

As others have stated you can stop worrying about that even being a possibility. Airlines sell exit rows at an extra cost now and unless you pay for it you won't be seated there. And even if you were seated there FAA rules would not let you stay there if you felt you couldn't handle the task of opening the door, picking it up and placing it on the seat in front of you.

Thank God for that because my flight would not be a good one if I had to worry about the safety of others not that I am a selfish person

On U.S. flights, you also must be able to understand directions in English to be allowed to sit in an exit row. I was on a US Airways flight earlier this month where a passenger who spoke only Spanish was ordered out of the exit row.
