Apr 15 - two black men forced to change clothes before being able to board flight

Two African-American passengers are claiming a U.S. Airways airline employee refused to let them into first class unless they changed out of their hoodies and jeans.
Miles and MacCraig Warren were flying home from Denver to Los Angeles after a relative’s funeral last August. The brothers say an airline employee stopped them at the gate, asking MacCraig to remove his baseball cap and telling Miles to change into a button-up shirt, nicer shoes and slacks.
“They were told that this was the policy if you wanted to ride in first class,” lawyer Rodney Diggs told the New York Daily News.
Not wanting any trouble, the brothers decided to follow the dress code. But once onboard the flight, they were shocked to see Michael Heffernan, a white passenger, and Edward DeLeon, his Filipino friend, wearing the same clothing the black men weren’t allowed to wear--jeans and hoodies.
“They were very upset when they saw the other two gentlemen sitting right across from them,” Diggs said. “This is definitely racial discrimination and a violation of their civil rights.”
The brothers filed a lawsuit in federal court this week, seeking punitive damages for discrimination and emotional distress.
Todd Lehmacher, a spokesperson for U.S. Airways, told the New York Daily News that the company is currently reviewing the complaint.
“We welcome customers of all ethnicities and backgrounds and do not tolerate discrimination of any kind. We take these allegations seriously,” Lehmacher said in a statement.
The Warrens were traveling first-class through a discounted “buddy pass,” Diggs said. They got their tickets through a family friend who is an U.S. Airways employee.
“Employees are aware of the travel policy and required to understand the expectations when utilizing their pass privileges,” Lehmacher said.
Diggs said his clients were never informed that different policies applied to reduced fare and regular fare passengers.
“If this is a policy, it has to be practiced at all times and not just selectively implemented when they want it to be implemented,” said Diggs.

The airline must be held accountable. The two brothers (no pun intended) are doing the right thing by hitting them where it hurts worst...their pockets and their reputation.

"buddy pass". Key words.

They can be bi*ches about that sh*t if they know u flying standby on a buddy pass. Cuz they know you flying dam near half price or even more.

They prolly ain't enforce it on the other dude Cuz he actually bought a real ticket.

And that gives them the right to discriminate? The ignorance is strong with this reply.

Regardless if they paid full or half-price they paid for a service and that service treated them differently than the other passengers.

There are no set prices on plane tickets anyway, you can pay $200 more or less than the person sitting next to you. Thats been exposed already too.

it has nothing to do with a "buddy pass", vs "paid ticket", it's clear cut discrimination.

if the first class policy says: no baseball caps, hoodies (other urban apparel), then there shouldn't have been anyone in first class with those articles of clothing.

Oh Nah. Its still discrimination. I know. I'm just saying them customer service muhfu*kas be looking at people with buddy passes like they getting over on the company or some sh*t. Like its affecting they pay or something. I've witnessed that sh*t. But if u a paying customer you gonna get treated differently which is still wrong

And if they wuda made a scene in the terminal, whoever gave them the tickets might've gotten fired.

You can easily spot the cacs in this thread. They mad as hell.

Its either you want everyone in first class to look professional or they can where whatever They want. Black guy in hoody looks more threatening then a Filipino guy in a hoody to white people.

White people so scared of what the black man will do to them

No fu*ks given about the following huh?

They aren't getting a dime. They used the "buddy pass" so they have to adhere to the buddy pass rules. The white guy and the filipino guy paid full fare so they got to wear whatever they wanted. Had they also used the buddy pass and got to wear whatever they wanted, then its discrimination and you have a case.

Can someone give me a copy of these separate "buddy pass" rules? Since when can an airline discriminate based on clothing that isn't obscene or revealing?
