- Two veteran United flight attendants are suing the airline for discriminating against employees based on their physical attributes by only staffing athletic team charter flights with young, blond crews, Bloomberg reported.
- The flight attendants, which Bloomberg identified as a Black woman and a Jewish woman who have both worked at United for more than 28 years, said they could not work on the charter flights because they were not on the “preferred” list.
- The complaint says young, white, blond flight attendants with less experience were able to work the flights in an example of the airline valuing employees based “entirely on their racial and physical attributes, and stereotypical notions of sexual allure,” according to Bloomberg.
