If You Are Disabled Don’t Fly Us Airways!
BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS -- I made the biggest mistake booking a flight with US Airways! Never again…I do take responsibility booking a direct flight instead of a non-stop flight, that won’t ever happen again. However, the flight was delayed over an hour in Philadelphia. I sat on the plane for an hour, not able to leave the plane to get some food due to the transporter had already left? I was supposed to be the last one off the plane I thought.
The flight attendant did offer me some water, apple juice, chips & salsa free of charge – I was still hungry. My flight left Boston at 11:30 and did not leave Philadelphia until 3 or later. When we finally arrived in Atlanta after 5, while waiting for the wheelchair service another woman was waiting with me she stated her daughter was angry the flight was delayed and the flight attendant said in a snide tone, “She’ll get over it, you made it here.”
Unfortunately, the wheelchair service was terrible – I waited for service throughout the entire ordeal & inexperienced transporters not trained in pushing wheelchairs made it even worse! I was hungry and very disappointed!
