Feeling trapped, but determined
Bronwyn Millard fears new policies of Quantas Airlines regarding transporting certain types of wheelchairs will effectively confine her son, Shane, to his hometown. She's determined to find a solution. Says Millard in this ABC News Online article: "Shane's traveled six times before on Qantas and there's never been a problem. It's just a work health safety thing and I'd like to know why they brought it in to start with and what is my son supposed to do?" Qantas says the restrictions on three types of aircraft are needed because they cannot be loaded in the upright position and to protect staff from injury.
