There was a story that was published everywhere else around the Country that the local news media didn't pick up, (including Salisbury News) but should be exposed/told.
Back in November Piedmont Airlines had a flight going out of Philly going to Long Island in New York. It should be noted that Piedmont Airlines Corporate Office is right here in Salisbury.
On this flight a blind man had his service dog with him. He was instructed to keep the dog "under the seat" but the plane had been delayed for about an hour. Hence, the dog became somewhat wrestless and extended out from under the seat to where the gentleman's feet were.
The Airline Stewardess demanded the dog remain under his seat and the blind man became upset because they had been waiting so long. To make a long story short, the blind man was removed from the Plane and ultimately the flight was canceled.
Some passengers on the flight had a different take of the incident.
"When we, the passengers, realized what was going on, we were, like, 'Why is this happening? He's not a problem. What is going on?'" Frank Ohlhorst told 6ABC.com. "And we all kind of raised our voices and said, 'This is a real problem.' The captain came out of the cockpit and he basically asked us all to leave the aircraft."
For what it's worth, Salisbury News has become aware of other major issues right out of the Salisbury Airport in which the public has never been made aware of. In the near future we will be publishing this extremely important information for YOUR SAFETY.
One of the reasons this may not have hit the local news was because they said it was a U.S. Airways Flight and not a Piedmont Flight. More to come...
