‘I felt like I was being held hostage so I had no other option but to call the police’
This is a disgraceful state of affairs and it is not an isolated incident for another disabled passenger was left on a plane at Gatwick.
As is stated the airport authorities would have been well aware that assistance was required as the planes captain would have radioed ahead that assistance was required. Even 10 – 15 minutes would be too long to wait for the required assistance should have been there as the plane landed so that the disabled passenger would be the first off the plane rather than the last.
Yet again disability discrimination which should not be countenanced. Equality should be there aways.
