I will never recommend or travel via Exeter Airport or Flybe. My experience as a disabled traveller at the hands or a security guard was discriminatory, abusive and derogatory. I did not go to Exeter aiport to be publically verbally and physically abused by one of the security officiers. I am AVSec qualified and worked in air asset protect in the RAF for years, experiencing air security in airports all over the world, both regional and international, in 40 years of travel this was the worst. The security officer should be sacked. This was not through ignorance nor lack of training, but a deliberate and calculated actions by this member of staff. I not other have had similar experiences, including one lady who appeared on Devon Live.
