I've been following the Accessible Airline Access Project and received an update from them recently.
I know a number of people who have had their assistive devices broken or damaged by airlines, from mobility devices to insulin pumps...
If you've got information to share on such an experience, please contact David Perry, who states"I'm collecting stories of people who have had their wheelchairs or other assistive mobility devices broken by airlines. Lollardfish@gmail.com. Please share. I'd like to put something together on this."
Every comment adds weight to the need for legislation to be passed ensuring equal airline access for all.
