Share of Cost, Frontier Airlines Fined for Violating Rules Protecting Air Travelers with Disabilities

Monday, Dec. 3rd 2012 4:12 PM

The U.S. Department of Transportation has fined Frontier Airlines for violating the Air Carrier Access Act. A passenger who is quadriplegic needs a restraint to sit upright in an aircraft seat. The Federal Aviation Administration prohibits seatbelt extenders as upper body restraints. The passenger did not have an alternative restraint method on his return flight, so he was removed from the airplane. The airline did not accommodate the passenger and also did not give him adequate assistance to get on and off the plane.
