British Airways Will Pay in Pregnancy Discrimination Suit

British Airways will pay millions of dollars in back pay to a group of more than 500 flight attendants who were prohibited from working on flights while pregnant. A British employment tribunal found the airline guilty of sex discrimination in 1998. A settlement was finally reached this week: the airline will pay $3.2 million in back pay from flying allowances lost when pregnant flight attendants were moved to ground duties.
