The downs and ups of access and the Belfast airport

As I was reading this item on a woman's complaint about getting a ticket at the Belfast airport, I admit I thought we only hear the negative when it comes to accomodation. That's one of the flaws of all media - heck of human nature. We gravitate to the negative. In this case, this woman was relating how she got a ticket for having a vehicle stand to load her and her husband's stuff after a trip. Her husband uses a wheelchair. Many able-bodied people did the same, but weren't ticketed, she wrote. But then at the end she mentions: "On a brighter note, Belfast generally treat their disabled passengers with dignity." I am glad she added that. It was one small blow for those who do the right thing too.
