I agree that there is discrimination, but don’t think you would get very far with this line of argument, as the airlines will say that the reason is operational safety.

If you look at the categories of people who are not allowed to sit there, it scopes in non-disabled people, too, such as families with young kids and older people.

The exit seats are required by law, so the airline didn’t create a new category of seat that is only available to certain people.

I agree it seems unfair, but if you feel strongly about it, would you check out the position with the Citizen’s Advice Bureau or a charity?
