Mr Gardner said that airlines and airports take too long to disabled passengers, witnesses of the Board.

He has also been criticised, to lose Heathrow, repeatedly, to remain in his wheelchair and forcing him on the plane, for the age, after all the other landed.

“When things go wrong, the consequences for the individual is significant,” the CAA acknowledged, adding that it will do “more to improve journeys for disabled passengers and those with reduced mobility”.

Heathrow is one of 10 airports is now listed as the “good” access, as “bad” in the last year.

“The car journey on arrival is now much faster and usually seamlessly from the aircraft to the last point,” the CAA said in its comments on the UK’s busiest airport.
