Seems some reporter must have an axe to grind with Jetstar.

I saw the interview with the guy and as others have said, he is a tool, just after publicity.

He was offered a Jetstar wheelchair, but decided to throw a tantrum because he wanted to use his own wheelchair (which actually looked more like a skateboard on steroids, than a wheelchair).

Rather than use the supplied wheelchair, he decided to crawl to the seat on his own and make a huge scene, and whinge that he wasn't able to do whatever he wanted to do, and was forced to follow the rules!

If it was me, I'd have banned him from the flight altogether as he is obviously a troublemaker.

I saw the statistics, but I can't remember the actual number, they said they carry something like 700 wheelchair passengers a week, and this guy is the only one to have any issues.
