Air travelers with disabilities in Europe stand to gain some additional consideration. EU ministers have approved rules giving air passengers the right to assistance for physical disabilities. If you think this is a superfluous measure in this day and age, you haven't been reading this blog. This is needed especially in Europe. The rules do have some outs, like an aircraft that's too small to accommodate someone or the ever popular "safety reasons." But at this point something needs to go on the books. The EU parliament should pass this legislation.
