EU to airlines: No discrimination against passengers with disabilities

Take that Ryanair and your ilk! The EU has passed legislation "that will prevent airlines from refusing to accept disabled people onto flights," says the Harrow Times.

While your first instinct may be to just get by without a commotion this law shows sometimes making a fuss pays dividends -- eventually. (photo via

It's kind of shocking to see how many airlines are coming under fire for doing this kind of thing. This is the sixth different airline I've seen in a month and a half.
