May 21, 2015 – Born with cerebral palsy and unable to walk, Kenichi Okubo of Hyogo, Japan, was denied boarding his flight by Jetstar and forced to spend the night in the airport. He and his lawyer say he is the victim of discrimination based on his disability and his human rights were violated.
Last summer, Okubo took Jetstar from Fukuoka to Bangkok on a business trip. Two weeks later, he went to the airport, passed through baggage check and security, but was denied boarding the plane at the gate.
