More British Disability Law

It looks like Britain's Disability Discrimination Act is more effective than the Air Carrier Access Act. See this article from the Guardian. The first couple of grafs:

Travellers with disabilities won a major legal victory today when the court of appeal ruled that both an airline and airport authority are responsible for providing a free wheelchair service.

Budget airline Ryanair had appealed after it was ordered to pay damages to a disabled man charged for using a wheelchair at Stansted airport in Essex.

The BBC also has this story.
