Judy and Daniel --
This is a note to alert you and the rest of the WAI with
respect to travel through France --specifically on Air
France.

I was not allowed to board an Air France flight in Paris
returning from the voice browser meeting in January 
--the excuse used was "you dont have a French muzzle."

George Kerscher had similar trouble the following week in
January --
this week George was once again thrown out of his flight by
Air France in Paris..
George was not allowed to board by the captain
saying "there is going to be turbulence on this flight and
that therefore the dog needs to go in the cargo"--


1) Please alert access users travelling to W3C meetings
   about this problem.
2) Daniel --could you check for your part on what French
   laws are?


--Raman

Best Regards,
--raman
