US Airways refused his request to accommodate his disability by allowing him to remain in the mailroom, and he lost his job.
Neither US Airways' position--that no accommodation violating a seniority system's rules is reasonable--nor Barnett's position--that "reasonable accommodation" authorizes a court to consider only the requested accommodation's ability to meet an individual's disability-related needs--is a proper interpretation of the Act.
US Airways' claim that a seniority system virtually always trumps a conflicting accommodation demand rests primarily upon its view of how the Act treats workplace "preferences." Insofar as a requested accommodation violates a disability-neutral workplace rule, such as a seniority rule, it grants the employee with a disability treatment that other workers could not receive.

 Passenger Opinions about US Airways
However they should be blamed for their failure to inform us that the flight was leaving 2 hours earlier than our tickets and itinerary stated - no-one from the airline had even considered to contact us and tell us, despite them being in possession of my husband's e-mail address and cellphone number.
I don't blame US Air for the bad weather at Philadelphia but their inability to provide a complimentary beverage on a flight delayed for so long at Houston was petty and mean in my opinion.
For example - US Airways provided snack boxes to those waiting in line, but at no time made an announcement regarding this; plastic food containers were just brought out and stacked on the counter, resulting in the inevitable rush to grab snack boxes and more confusion.
