SpiceJet offloads disabled passenger; pilot felt she was not fit to fly
In yet another instance of discrimination against disabled people, a woman was today offloaded from a SpiceJet flight from Kolkata to Goa. Jeeja Ghosh, a teacher at Kolkata's Indian Institute of Cerebral Palsy and a frequent flier across the country and abroad, was offloaded because the pilot felt she was not fit to fly. She has travelled alone in the past, but the pilot did not allow her to do it this time.
