A report says that two handicapped people accompanied by a healthy man were refused to board on the plane at Beijing Capital Airport. The airline explained that those handicapped who can not walk are not allowed to take flights and the disabled who can walk should inform the airline 36 hours in advance according to their regulation.

After negotiation, the airline agreed to carry the two disabled but they had to sign a paper, claiming the airline hold no responsibility for them once the accident happens.
In Jan. 2006, a girl’s right foot got injured badly in an accident and she had to be sent to Lanzhou for emergent surgery. However, the airline refused to carry her to Lanzhou. Finally, the girl’s right foot was cut off.
Why can the airline handle these situations flexibly? Should the handicapped be refused to board on the plane?

I would like to repeat it again. Airline may set separate seats for extraordinary people.
