UK: protests by passengers with disabilities

Some airlines have extra costs for this category of travellers

Major British airlines are charging extra for some disabled travelers who book domestic and international flights. This is a practice that is not in line with the directives of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), which even after "Brexit" continues to apply European law which urges companies to subsidize the purchase of tickets for Passengers with Reduced Mobility (PRM). 

This is what was discovered by an investigative report made by the state television station "BBC". Monitoring the bookings of about 30 airlines, it emerged that passengers with mobility problems are forced to buy a full-price ticket to take advantage of the personal assistant. A situation that the associations that protect the interests of consumers define as "discriminatory". 

Witnessing this is Melody Powell, 25 years old and in a wheelchair, who is forced to pay almost 600 pounds for a return flight to go to New York to visit friends, which has been charged for the additional costs relating to airport and on-board assistance, to reach the bathroom, get on and off the plane.
