Disabled travellers receive increased rights

Good news that disabled travellers are to be given more rights when flying to destinations within Europe.

From July 26th 2007 bookings will no longer be able to be refused by airlines, travel agents or tour operators on disability grounds.

The bad news...it's 2007 and just goes to show how incredibly far we have to go before people with disabilities are given the kind of legal rights other groups in society now take forgranted. Disability rights is the civil rights movement of the early 21st century, so why is it not being fought in the way other civil rights battles were fought so proudly and publicly?
