    Hopefully by the begining of the third decade of the 21st century wheelchair users can travel by air knowing our wheelchairs that give us our independence and mobility and our selves are treated with respect and dignity, preferably our chairs taying with us. My last flight, BA in to Heathrow, my chair was treated as luggage, and badly damged and myself as a sack of potatoes when leaving the plane. I knew a loo visit onboard was not feasible, friends seated far away, but did not expect crew to treat me as a non being, trying to remove my bag from my posession, with valuables, and work I needed to do, from me and place it in a locker far from my seat. I have not gone by air since.
