Reply To: Discrimination in accessible tourism and activities
Regular flights. Like a captain at sea, the pilot has the right to refuse passage (eg. drunk, aggressive, etc.). They are ultimately in charge of safety on board. The reason for initial refusal was they ‘could not guarantee my safety if I travelled alone’. My reasoning was that though I could not walk, this did not mean I could not move… I do believe understanding has increased over the years and this has definitely become the exception.
