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 sounds like it was written in 1964. A flight attendant is suing JetBlue Airways and Delta Air Lines because she could not board a Delta flight because a JetBlue employee told her that 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 an 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.”
