EasyJet is hit by ruling on wheelchairs; APPEAL.
The British airline had been fined PS60,000 by a Paris court in 2012 after three wheelchair-bound customers were turned away from flights at Charles de Gaulle airport in 2008 and 2009.
It was fined another PS4,000 in May for refusing to allow another disabled passenger to board in 2010 as she was not travelling with someone who could assist her.
After easyJet lost its appeal, the firm's lawyer Philippe van der Meulen said he was disappointed by the ruling.
In the initial trial, victim Karine Viera said: "We were barred because our presence means they run up costs as cabin crew have to do extra work to look after us."
