Delta Airlines, bumping handicapped passenger a-holes

4 Feb

Today’s A-hole of the Day Award goes goes to the nincompoop at Delta Airlines who thought it would be a good idea to pull a passenger with muscular dystrophy (and 100 pounds of medical equipment) off the plane just before take off. The victim,¬†Carrie Salberg, was asked to exit the airline and go find a spot next to the Cinnabon in Concourse C. Smart move, folks. After all, she’s already equipped with her own transportation (a wheelchair) and could easily make the trek ¬†from New Orleans to Minnesota on her own. Right? Wrong. What she’s going to do is sit there with her 100 pounds of medical equipment until some caring soul, or a really pissed lawyer, comes to her rescue her.
