Ok, this may be a little late in forwarding my two cents regarding our local budget airliner practicing discrimination towards people with physical disability. But what is there to talk about anymore? Everything has been said and this particular airline company should just start take a closer look at themselves and completely change their corporate tagline all together.
Why change? Well, they should. it's misleading.
They claimed everyone can now fly with them. Yet, they cannot accommodate people who are wheelchair-bound. So in other words, the physically disabled are not included as ‘everyone’. So what are we then? Goats?
Yeah sure its their father’s company and all the shit that they can do whatever they wish. Go ahead but for goodness sake get a new tagline that’s more appropriate and one that does not contradict with their own stupid policy.
Here’s a suggestion. NOW EVERYONE WHO ARE NOT CRIPPLED CAN FLY.
MAS, our national carrier, on the other hand, has been a little more sensitive towards the disabled community. Maybe its based on hearsay but most of my buddies had a wonderful experience flying with them. Even my flight attendant friend assured me of that.
My only concern is that we have to switch our chairs into theirs to get to our seat, which may not be convenient since some quads can only sit on their customised wheels. MAS should find ways to improve on this particularly. Surely they want to prove they are hands down the premier airliner for Malaysian masses, that includes being extra sensitive towards the needies
I’ve never experienced flying on planes since I was confined to wheelchair but still, if the need arises, I know which one to board.
