Disabled woman 'humiliated' by airport employee who refused assistance because she 'didn't look ill'

Disabled woman 'humiliated' by airport employee who refused assistance because she 'didn't look ill' | Accessible Travel | Scoop.it
A disabled passenger has branded Stansted Airport staff “disgusting” after she was denied assistance because she “didn’t look disabled”. Nathalie Allport-Grantham, 23, was flying to Nice with Ryanair on 31 December when a member of staff refused her the assistance she had confirmed ahead of her flight. She had requested the use of a wheelchair to help her to the gate, as well as assistance carrying her hand luggage onboard the aircraft.
Brian Seaman's insight:
I'm sorry to say this is another case of 'you don't look disabled / disabled enough' for us to provide our support. I know staff are busy at airports, but this demonstrates how wrong they can be about a passenger, who had booked assistance in advance of travelling.
