Injured War Hero’s Told: “It’s Not My Problem” By Airline Staff

Posted on October 31, 2014

Thomas Cook has come under fire after it emerged that a group of injured servicemen were denied access to aisle chairs and assistance from crew during a recent flight.
War hero Ben Parkinson, who lost both his legs and suffered a devastating brain injury from a bomb blast in Afghanistan, was among a group of fellow injured forces personnel on the flight from Paphos last Sunday.
Parkinson is an ambassador for military charity Pilgrim Bandits, who revealed that a Thomas Cook crew member told them it was ‘not my problem’ when asked why there were no disabled assistance on board the aircraft.
