Flight attendants accuse Frontier Airlines of discrimination against mothers

Frontier Airlines faces another round of discrimination complaints. This time from employees who say the company doesn't accommodate nursing mothers.

DENVER BUSINESS JOURNAL - Frontier Airlines got hit with another round of discrimination complaints today, as a pair of female flight attendants filed a federal complaint alleging the Denver-based carrier does not provide them adequate space to pump milk following pregnancy leave.

The complaint, filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, comes one year after four women pilots leveled similar accusations against Frontier.

A spokesman for the airline said its policies and practices comply with all federal and state laws as well as with the relevant provisions of the collective bargaining agreement between Frontier and its flight attendant group.
