Qantas embroiled in unfortunate disability discrimination and humiliation

I have just come across an incident involving Qantas and a passenger in an electric wheelchair who was flying from Canberra to Melbourne to attend the launch of Disability Care Australia.

The Full story details the humiliating incident. Essentially Qantas refused to carry her spare battery despite all the necessary paperwork being sent to them in advance.

We must put a stop to such discrimination from airlines. They are an essential form of travel and must cater for all disabilities.

The story is courtesy of DisabilityDirectory.net.au

I have had many problems with my own guide dog and it is only through pushing the airlines and adverse publicity that we can improve the situation for everyone in the future.
