NORTHEASTERN PA (WPVI) --A northeastern Pennsylvania man claims he was recently removed from an American Airlines flight because of his disability.
Mark Smith works for Pride Mobility, a motorized wheelchair company in Exeter.
He also has cerebral palsy.
Smith boarded a flight from Los Angeles to Philadelphia on Monday night.
But says he was ordered off the plane and rebooked on a later flight.
"I was in shock. I was confused and in disbelief because I fly so often for business," he says.
Smith claims American Airlines never explained why he was taken off the flight.
American Airlines issued a statement apologizing to Smith and has reached out to him regarding the incident.
