Monday Rant: Staff ‘refused to let a severely autistic boy, 15, onto a Ryanair flight from Alicante after trying to charge his family a £25 carry-on fee for the teenager’s comfort doll’

This is ridiculous, nothing shows me with this airline. They are an utter farce. This poor family, not to mention how they ridiculed him in front other passengers. Travelling with a disability is hard enough. Don’t make it harder.

Well done Jet2 for stepping up to the plate. Compassion for disabled people and

anyone for that matter.

it’s incidents like this that put disabled people off of travelling.

We don’t need to more barriers, we need human common sense.

  1. I found this utterly baffling. I know they have so many hidden charges but that’s taking ‘hand luggage’ to the extreme. They wouldn’t have charged someone for carrying a bottle of water on board for instance.

    You think they’d apply a bit of common sense in situations like this.
