When Donald Unanka approached the airline for explanation, the airline officials told him that he cant board the aircraft because he is on wheelchair and the aircraft is small and that it will be difficult to board the aircraft. Every attempt to make sure that Donald Unanka board the aircraft even with assistance of his personal was rejected by the airline.
