US Airways sued for making black first-class passengers remove hoodies

2stepz_ahead2stepz_ahead Who I am is Complex, What i am, simply put. I'm a Threatwalking out the lions denPosts: 28,710 ✭✭✭✭✭
Two African-American passengers, MacCraig Warren and Miles Warren, have filed a federal discrimination lawsuit against US Airways for allegedly telling them to change out of their hoodies, jeans, and baseball caps before they could board a first-class flight. The airline, however, claims that the request simply followed industry-wide policy for non-revenue paying passengers.

According to the lawsuit, last August, the Warrens were heading from Denver to Los Angeles after attending a relative's funeral. At the ticket counter, a US Airways employee told the passengers that they would have to change into a button-up shirt, slacks, and take off their baseball caps before they could board first-class.

The passengers told TODAY that they were "shocked" and "humiliated" by the request.

After the Warrens changed their attire, the lawsuit said, they were amazed to find that two other fellow first-class passengers, one white and one Filipino, were wearing hooded sweatshirt and jeans.

"It's just discrimination, that's it," plaintiff's attorney Rodney Diggs told TODAY.

US Airways said in a statement, "We welcome customers of all ethnicities and backgrounds and do not tolerate discrimination of any kind. We take these allegations seriously."

US Airways spokesperson Liz Landau told NBC News that preliminary investigation indicates that these were non-revenue passengers traveling as part of the employee travel program.

"We hold employees to a dress policy," said Landau, which includes those traveling on employee passes, but, "We do not have a dress code for passengers." Details of the dress policy are not public information, Landau said, but "employees are aware of the policy and they live up to the expectations."

The lawsuit avers, "US Airways acted intentionally, maliciously, and with willful, callous, wanton and reckless disregard for Plaintiff's statutorily protected rights and for the deleterious consequences and cruel and unjust hardship resulting to Plaintiffs from the conduct of US Airways." The Warrens are suing for racial discrimination and intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress. The plaintiffs seek punitive damages.

"We are continuing to investigate internally to determine exactly what happened and will respond to the specifics of the complaint at that time," said Landau.

    problem is....most white people dont want blacks in first class.

    they want to feel superior unless you have a suit on and that somehow makes they at ease.

    i stay wearing my black 49ers hoodie and jeans.

    they were using buddy passes. so they were airline employees, or received the passes reserved for employees. If the Airline has a dress code policy for people using the buddy passes, then they are ok. If not, then i'm flying Delta

    i never seen someone using buddy passes in first class.

    thats would stop people from upgrading and block potential profit or a frequent flyer

    Therefore, they don't really have a case.

    They were not employees, they were passengers who got the passes from an employee. There for that rule shouldn't or doesn't apply to them. Or they should have received warning from when they picked up their passes.

    Even still, the employee who gave them the passes should've told them about the dress code.

    If the employee wasn't aware of the dress code, it's still his/her fault for not knowing the dress code policy and how it applies to anyone they give passes to.

    The whole thing sounds like some kind of premeditated ploy to set the airline up for a lawsuit.

    Shit just seems suspect.

    So, you're mad because I quoted a post.....that included a scantily clad pic of you......that you sent to another man.....while both of you are supposed to be in committed relationships with other people?

    Most of your business is public knowledge Kathryn.

    You should learn to exercise more discretion.

    You're too old to continuously find yourself in compromising situations.

    I'm extremely disappointed in your behavior and expect much better of you in the future.

    With compassion, concern, sincerity, and due diligence.

    That's a horrible thing to say.

    I'm sorry you feel that way Kathryn.

    However, I've never heard of anyone dying of old age at 43.

    My words must've really hit home for you to want me to die tonight.

    I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings.

    Instead of wishing me death, your time would be better served reflecting on your past transgressions and thinking about what steps you can take to improve yourself.

    You wished death upon me Kathryn.

    Solely because I quoted a post which featured you in a bathrobe with your privates partially exposed.

    A pic that would have never been publicly accessible had it not been for your carelessness and bad judgement.

    Essentially, you want me to die for your mistakes.

    Smarten up Kathryn.

    If anyone caught feelings it's you.

    This is just entertainment for me.

    @deadeye nah mate, fuck off, I literally hate seeing your name in my notifications because I know it's your FUCKING LIST. I'm tired of being @'d to some thread because of your shitty list, makes me just want to punch you in your fat fucking face.

    You're a digrace to creepset and 'mature' black men the world over.

    Fuck your entire existence.


    You are a plain idiot. Since you cannot give birth nor have a proper sense of enduring and suffering you cannot understand my post.

    @Westie has put her life on the line several times to give life. I wish I had an ounce of that courage, endurance and resiliance.

    Should all employees know the dress code? Seeing they had to pick up their ticket/passes, they should have been told so then, right?

    Somewhere threw those many check points it should have been caught by an employee. After all the do look at the boarding passes at every stop.

    Yeah but it wasn't mentioned to them until they got to the gate. So they were stopped atleast two time prior to that. I saw the news report and didn't read this article.
