I heard a story about a 12 year old girl called Alice Saunders who has Downs Syndrome. She wasn’t allowed to travel on a plane on her own.
What is the problem? It should be the same for all children, including children with learning disabilities. This is discrimination.
This is a story with a happy ending because Alice Saunders and her family stood up for her rights.
They argued with British Airways and told them that this is all wrong. British Airways realised that they had made a huge mistake and apologised.
I am pleased that Alice has spoken up about her rights and she is proud of being a person with Downs Syndrome. Well done Alice!
Good on you Alice for getting it sorted out. You deserve the free tickets which British Airways gave you to make up for their mistake.
We hope that all airlines take notice of this story and stop discriminating against disabled people.
