from news.com.au:

A WHEELCHAIR-bound man felt humiliated at a foreign airport when Jetstar refused to let him on board because he couldn't walk.

Glen McDonnell, 36, had travelled with the budget carrier from Darwin to Thailand via Singapore.

But when he was boarding the plane at Bangkok for his return flight, Jetstar staff told him they were unable to take him home.

Note the airline involved is Jetstar Asia (3K).

Sad to see some people still enjoy humiliating other human beings.

Sad to see some people still enjoy categorising other human beings on the basis of their nationality. I guess it was a racist person that made that comment.

Some Buddhists consider disabled persons to be so-afflicted as retribution for wrongdoings in past lives.

In our culture, all I can say that is "Wow :shock:", but each to their own. It just goes to show how different cultures can view 1 situation in many different lights and in today's world of things being very much so the western way (especially when it comes to flight travel).
