    Not as such. I have travelled tons and rarely have I experienced negativity from peers. Once I was accused of not being sufficiently disabled and abusing the system when at a football match. In terms of institutionalised discrimination, I have been refused passage on a few occasions by the pilot because I was travelling alone. Though this is a pilot’s right, on each occasion, the ground staff or myself managed to change the pilots mind, to my favour. But I know of others who were less fortunate. Knowing your rights is always best to counteract ignorance & perception. I’m a paraplegic btw.
