Airline sorry for false legs fee
An airline has apologised for charging an amputee who wanted to take a spare pair of prosthetic legs on holiday an additional £10 each way.
Mick Skee, 47, of Wardley, Gateshead, lost both legs after contracting meningitis two years ago.
He wanted to take a spare pair of false limbs on his holiday to Majorca next May but Jet2 told him he would have to pay a surcharge.
The airline has now refunded the money, and said it had changed its guidelines.
this is not a funny story - even though at first might appear that way .
haven't tagged it as "humour" .
