I'm sitting here bored, frustrated, and upset. For my 20 hour flight to America there will be no in-flight entertainment – but that's because I'm blind and Virgin don't have audio captions on their entertainment system.
As someone who is blind, while my fellow jet lagged travellers get through the hours watching movies - I'm often left calling for help or not knowing what's happening on screen.
The solution is simple. But I'm told that while Virgin Australia have the software upgrade ready, they're not putting it on planes just yet because blind people aren't a business priority.
Jetlag is the worst. Now imagine you were left stuck for 20 hours without any entertainment!
Please sign my petition asking Virgin Australia to help blind people like me out – and make in-flight entertainment accessible for us!
