American Airlines

Apologize to the special needs community and amend your corporate policy.

      Los Angeles, CA

Denying a person the right to board an aircraft because they have special needs violates the individual's rights as a human being. The discriminatory actions of employees at American Airlines is a disgrace and should not be tolerated. An apology to the special needs community and immediate amending to company policy is in order.

      It is important to me because I have a son with cerebral palsy and a learning disabillity. The only thing he expects is to have friends and fit in...

      I WOULD ONLY FLY WITH AN AIRLINE THAT ALLOWED SPECIAL NEEDS FAMILIES ETC. THEY ARE THE KIND OF PPL THAT MAKE THE WORLD GO AROUND.

      I love being a helper for Special Olympics and these kids inspired me to do much more with my life then just play soccer and volleyball with them.

      I have a friend whose son has Down syndrome. The possibility of them getting this sort of treatment is unacceptable.
