My goodness India is a very cruel society. I wonder if they have something called a heart.
Firstly hardly 1-2% of the passengers are crippled/need wheelchair assistance. So helping 1-2 passenger board a flight should not be a big deal. right?
About the passing the cost to other healthy passengers. If your airlines is so much lean and mean as you claim it to be, then why don’t u allow them to have a companion who would roll them to their airport seat and quickly board off the plane (without creating any disturbance) …. it works perfectly well for Railways, Bus services.. I wonder why it won’t work for airlines…
or if you have problems in doing that… make a announcement…. I am sure not 1 not 2 but alteast 20 co-passengers will love to volunteer.
BTW one of my best friend has a polio… and I have been friends will some physically challenged individuals and none of them want to be assisted or any special treatments. All they want is that the buildings and airports should have a ramp comfortable enough for them to roll. They r not looking for charity… so don’t portray as if you are giving them one
Is it too much to ask for? Is it something for which they should pay extra?
