Meeting the MEPs
The group of visually impaired passengers kicked off a Ryanair flight because they violated the airline's four disabled people per flight rule, traveled to Brussels to lobby members of the European parliament last week. They were told a a new European law will be voted on next month that would ensure compensation for discriminatory actions by airlines. Chris Maule-Oatway, 56, from Norwich, one of the ejected passengers said: "I think it is very important for airlines not to discriminate. We understand that there are health and safety issues, but there should not be discrimination." Such a law would be a great step forward.
