Invisible Disabilities Policy on Airlines

Postby malory » Sun May 13, 2018 11:20 am

Following the horrible incident on United Airlines (not the first time somebody has been kicked off a plane for odour), I am writing emails to several airlines regarding the need to train staff to be aware of metabolic malodour disorders such as Trimethylaminria. Please try to join me by writing to a few airlines too.

I would like to request that all air stewards and staff are trained in being aware of invisible disabilities including incurable metabolic malodour, which results in the sufferer emitting a pungent odour. In light of the discriminatory actions of United Airlines,

our community is very worried that travelling with this condition could result in trauma and humiliation.

Another horrific discriminatory incident on an aeroplane. Please take the time to contact some airlines.
I also suggest that we purchase bracelets from IDA. If we can't control our odours, then we must protect ourselves from discrimination when travelling on the grounds of invisible disability. https://invisibledisabilities.org/

I would like to request that air stewards and Airways staff are trained in being aware of invisible disabilities including incurable metabolic malodour spectrum disorders such as Trimethylaminuria ( https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/trimethylaminuria/), which results in the sufferer emitting a pungent odour which is NOT connected to personal hygiene. In light of the discriminatory, ignorant and insensitive actions of United Airlines,

and Transavia Airlines,

our community is very worried that travelling with this condition could result in trauma and humiliation. Could you please ensure that sensitive treatment of metabolic body odour sufferers is included in your customer service inclusion training and policy.
