Virgin backs down on wheelchair policy

Excellent! I love a happy ending, don’t you?

The Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission (HREOC) says it is pleased that Virgin Blue has backed down on a policy change affecting disabled passengers.

The airline says wheelchair passengers will no longer have to travel with a carer at their own expense.

The commissioner responsible for disability discrimination, Graeme Innes, says the commission will continue working for the rights of disabled air travellers.

“Virgin’s decision to change their policy is a good first step,” he said.

    One small step for man, one giant leap for the disabled. Perserverance pays off. Give that man a medal!
