I just heard on the ABC evening news that US Airways refused to allow a man in a wheelchair to fly because he didn't have a companion. They said it was for his own safety because in the event of an emergency he needed to have someone with him to help him. This sounds like a case that people of all types of disabilities might want to rally around.
