Push vs. lift

Katja at Broken Clay Journal posts on Virgin Blue's new policy on passengers who use wheelchairs. Staff now won't push the special boarding wheelchair down the aisle, but they will assist in transferring into the seat. On what universe does this make sense? I submit they're figuring so few will get past the first barrier that they won't really have to worry about the second part of the policy. Grrrrr.
