When is a million people not enough?

There's an interesting stat buried in this feel good press release from American Airlines:
"Every year more than a million American Airlines and American Eagle customers are travelers with disabilities."
In a year, they carry a total of about 80 million passengers (in 2001 anyway). So disabled passengers are about 1.25 percent of their passengers.
One million travelers with disabilities for just one airline And still planes are as in accessible as they are. (Photo by Richard van Binsbergen via

Nice pick up with the stat! It sounds great the way it's phrased in the article but your analysis reveals a different story.
