Too Disabled to Fly

Can it get any worse?   A passenger who has cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair was recently removed from his US Airways flight because allegedly, an airline employee deemed him, a frequent business traveler,  “too disabled to fly” without an assistant.  US Airways has a policy that requires passengers with severe mobility impairments to travel with someone to help them evacuate in the event of an emergency.   A similar incident happened to another traveler who is blind and travels with his service dog. The ADA just celebrated its’ 20th birthday.  Isn’t anyone paying attention?
