Two United Airlines flight attendants have filed a lawsuit alleging racial and age discrimination.

They claim they were excluded from charter flights for the Los Angeles Dodgers in favor of flight attendants who met a specific physical appearance preference.

The flight attendants, who have been with United Airlines for over 15 years, are seeking damages for alleged discrimination and harassment.

The complaint, filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, contends Todd and Quezada were passed over in favor of “white, young, thin women who are predominantly blond and blue-eyed.”

“Todd, 50, is Black; Quezada, 44, has Mexican, Black and Jewish heritage,” the report found. (Trending: Joe Biden Historic Take Down of Guns)

“Both have been employees of United Airlines for more than 15 years and are seeking unspecified damages for alleged discrimination and harassment,” the report added.

United Airlines has responded by stating it fosters an inclusive environment and will vigorously defend itself against the allegations.

The LA Dodgers baseball team is not named as a defendant in the lawsuit.

A spokesperson for the team declined to comment on the pending litigation.
