And yet another incident that shocks every person with reduced mobility.."Am I the next to be targetted?" The airliners continue to harrass and discriminate against persons with disabilities with their limited understanding. Its EasyJet this time. This is despite tall claims about what they offer to persons with disabilities/or with those having specific requirements at their website at link: http://www.easyjet.com/en/planning/specific/index.html.
In June 2011, they debarred a boy with disability for reason that his wheelchair was too heavy! In another incident in December 2011, a blind women was not allowed by the airliner to board because she wasn't carrying the necessary documentation for her guide dog to fly (though the guide dog was wearing the official harness and collar tag!) The lady Ms. Joanna Jones had been flying for last 12 years with the guide dog! The excuses continue to amaze many of us each time!
Not long ago, Easy Jet was fined 60 thousand Ponds for discriminating with three passengers with disabilities. However, they don't seem to have learnt. Here is the recent incidence of January 2012.
