ADA Interpretation: Oxygen for Travelers

SkyWest won its court appeal dismissing a lawsuit brought against the
commuter airline by a blind passenger who suffers from a lung ailment.

The
woman had sued claiming that SkyWest did not provide medical oxygen on
flights between Salt Lake City and St. George, Utah. The court held that
the Air Carrier Access Act gives airlines "discretion" to provide medical
oxygen but does not absolutely require it for disabled travelers.
