too disabled to travel

Before you continue to read this post, read this original source

to understand the content for this post. I understand the concern of this flight attendant. But it begs some questions for me on a personal level. If I was in the situation presented in the for mentioned article I think I would be deeply offended.

  1. Assuming that this persons disability was strictly physical in nature I think it is a safe assumption that if this individual couldn’t travel on his own he would have someone accompany him?
  2. He has travelled before without problems why now is their issues

I respect the concern of the flight attendant but am concerned that the passenger himself was not consulted

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.

    I’m with you – the airline needs to look out for the safety of the passengers, but why didn’t they consult him before making decisions on his behalf? What they did was nothing short of discrimination.
