Flight Attendant's Failure to Dress Sexy

On Friday, the Maryland Injury Lawyer Blog wrote a post about an article in Time Magazine about auto accident lawsuits from 1964. This story in USA Today is sounds like it was written in 1964. A flight attendant is suing JetBlue Airways and Delta Air Lines because she was not able to board a Delta flight because a JetBlue employee said her outfit wasn’t sexy enough. When she complained above, no one intervened. She received a right to sue letter last year from the EEOC. Delta's in the lawsuit because Delta has an agreement for JetBlue to ferry Delta flight attendants to job assignments.

Obviously, these are just allegations. I'm not surprised when any individual employee does anything. There are a lot of folks in supervisory positions that are not playing with all 52 cards. But I would be surprised if management at JetBlue did not respond to these allegations. Because they scream "lawsuit" and "bad publicity."
