News: Easyjet loses disability discrimination case in France

A French court has found the British low-cost airline Easyjet guilty of discriminating against three disabled passengers in 2008 and 2009.

The court fined Easyjet 70,000 euros ($90,000, 58,000) for not allowing the unaccompanied wheelchair users onto a plane at Charles de Gaulle airport near Paris, citing safety concerns.

A lawyer for the three passengers described it as a "landmark ruling".
