The article presents the author's insight regarding air travel of persons with disabilities. The author relates that air carriers transfer their responsibility to disabled persons to contract aides. He also underscores the value of contract aides' qualifications and training. Moreover, he states that the U.S. Congress should act on the issue by forcing air carriers to establish uniform guidelines on boarding, training assistants, and aisle chairs.
