Television presenter Sophie Morgan is calling on airlines to offer concessions for disabled travellers after she was left without means of moving “short of dragging herself along the floor” on a British Airways flight.
Ms Morgan, who was paralysed in a car crash when she was 18 and uses a wheelchair, was left unassisted for 45 minutes during a 12-hour flight from Buenos Aires to London Heathrow with no means of contacting a flight attendant.
The Channel 4 Paralympics presenter said she called repeatedly for help on the 9 June service, to no avail. “Two to three hours into the flight, I rang the call button as I needed a glass of water to take some medication,” she told The Independent.
