Carrier will refuse to transport, or will remove from an aircraft at any point, any passenger in the following circumstances:
If Carrier determines that an individual meeting the criteria of Article 10.E. (1), (2), or (3) above must travel with an attendant, contrary to the individual's self–assessment that he or she is capable of traveling independently, Carrier will not charge the individual with the disability for the transportation of the attendant while accompanying such individual. Furthermore, if, because there is not a seat available on a flight for an attendant whom Carrier has determined to be necessary, an individual with a disability having a confirmed reservation is unable to travel on the flight, such individual will be eligible for denied boarding compensation under Article 105 below. For purposes of determining whether a seat is available for an attendant, the attendant shall be deemed to have checked in at the same time as the individual with the disability.
NOTE: Carrier will not refuse to provide transportation to a qualified individual with a disability solely because the individual's disability results in appearance or involuntary behavior that may offend, annoy, or inconvenience crewmembers or other passengers.
The fare of any passenger denied transportation or removed from Carrier's aircraft enroute under the provisions of Article 10 will be refunded in accordance with Article 90 of this Contract of Carriage. The sole recourse of any passenger refused transportation or removed enroute will be the recovery of the refund value of the unused portion of his or her Ticketless Travel Confirmation.
