Delta Airlines-I Filed a Legal Complaint Against the Airport

Image

 

                                   On Dec. 22, 2012 as you know Delta Airlines did not provide me any closed captioning monitors at my gate to announce when my flight was leaving.   Nor did they bother to close caption the safety demonstration on my plane for me.   And the flight attendant did not know sign language and she had no knowledge of how to communicate with me as a deaf passenger.  And even though I told the people in the airport I was deaf when I checked in my bags, they did not refer me to any kind of special services they had for deaf people.   So, I decided to do something.    So I turned around and filled out some forms, got it notarized and send it out.   They received it, and notified me that they will be doing an investigation at Delta Airlines regarding my complaint.
  Hopefully this will solve some problems in most airports that the deaf passengers are going through.   Things has got to change for the deaf passengers.   As far as I know, some of the deaf people are getting the services there.   But they need to provide services for ALL of the deaf passengers, not just some of them!   I will continue on with this fight for my rights!

I was born deaf. The doctors thought I could hear, but my parents couldn't get me to learn to talk. When I was three, my mom took me to an audiologist who concluded I was deaf. That's when I got my first pair of hearing aids and took speech therapy to learn to talk.

  1. Good for you, Wanda. So many of us just take whatever is handed to us, good or bad, and never go the extra mile to change the status quo. I’ve got my fingers crossed for you. Thanks for doing the right (and brave) thing!

  2. Thank you! And I’m hoping it’s all for the best for the airport and for the deaf passengers. It’s about time for the airport to do more to reach out to the deaf passengers and to let us know how to apply for their special services.

  3. I simply want to say I’m very new to blogging and site-building and certainly loved you’re web site. Almost certainly I’m planning to bookmark your site . You definitely have superb article content. Cheers for revealing your webpage.

  4. Thank you so much!:)
