I am willing to participate in this training, as someone who does not have a
guide dog.

I spoke to a gentleman who works for Air Serv, the company that provides
wheelchair and escort services at CVG.  This company also provides these
services at several airports around the U.S.  He assured me they do not have
a policy requiring blind people to ride in a wheelchair.  I told him about
our experience and he plans to talk with the man who told us that is was
required by the company insurance policy and in their policy manual.
He will post the policy in the break room.  He thought there might be some
confusion because the airlines usually provide assistance to blind people at
CVG.  I plan to call him tomorrow and offer to provide training to their
staff on working with blind people.  OAGDU, with Deanna's approval, will do
this training.  This emphasizes that it is important to advocate when
something like this happens.  I hope anyone who has a similar situation will
contact Air Serv at the Cincinnati Airport so this discrimination ends.
