United Airlines is back in the news for violating rules which helps ensures passengers with disabilities. This isn’t the first time United Airlines in the news in relation to issues with disabilities. 

United has been fined 2.75 million which was agreed upon by the Department of Transportation.

The fine includes a $2 million penalty for violating rules intended to protect passengers with disabilities. This fine happens to be the largest fines ever levied by the government which is due a non-safety-related matter at an airline. United will pay the Treasury Department $700,000 within 30 days and will receive credit for money it spends to help address the issue.  

Over the past few years other airlines were also fined in relation to how the companies have treated disabled passengers. 

We here at AMCPress&Co hopes that United Airlines makes the proper improvements to help fix the issue at hand. Flying can be challenging no matter if you have a disability or not. In my own opinion it was about time for United to make the proper changes to provide everyone who flies with their company the best flight they can have. What’s your opinion on this issue facing United?
