Paralympian takes legal action against Virgin Blue

A wheelchair-bound Paralympian is taking legal action against Virgin Blue over its policy on carrying disabled people.

Paul Nunnari says he was told by Virgin Blue staff that he would need to be accompanied by a carer at his own expense the next time he flies with the airline.

Virgin Blue says people who are not able to operate a wheelchair, put on an oxygen mask or help themselves in an emergency will be expected to be escorted by a carer.
