      Airline policies change, it is best to contact the airline directly to obtain the correct form and understand what the airline's requirements are for flying with oxygen.

      Jimmy the blog post you were reading had links to the forms for each airline. Depending on which airline the form is different. Here is the example for American Airlines. https://www.aa.com/content/images/travelInformation/POC_physicianStatement.pdf Hope this helps.
