Yep. We just don't know.

It's a good lesson though to see how the attorneys operate and we saw in the Womens soccer thread just how fired up and mad you can get people with a one sided narrative. Especially if the people reading the article lack any education on the topic of whatever the article is.

She is not asking for anything to be changed, just to be treated the same as the three men who were transferred and not terminated like she was.
The three men were a different situation. Only if they were too short would it be the same.

Exactly. She’s been flying for 14 years , so they should transfer her to another plane that works for her.

What if there are no other openings on the plane that works for her?

"FFA"??
What does the Future Farmers of America have to do with this story?
Is it possible you actually meant the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration)?
I rather doubt that the FAA has any regulations or requirements regarding employer standards. They license pilots and mechanics. Employers set their own requirements.

She was hired to fly a specific airplane. She couldn't do it. A job is not a right.

We don't know the full details of her termination. Maybe she made a scene? Sounds like there is more to the story based on her description of her departure.

I am a pilot. Been flying for 30+ years.

I would not fly with this person, not because she is female but because she is vertically challenged. During engine out operations, the ability to fully depress the opposite rudder pedal is imperative for safe single engine operation. She should fly aircraft that has the control wheel protruding from the instrument panel and not an aircraft with a yoke attached to the floor. A short person could have issues getting around the column.

She should intellectually realize this. The liability attached to her is too high.

As far as I am concerned, one's personal rights end when there is a real and provable risk that the lives of others would be put in danger.

I wonder if maybe they were planning on retiring the plane she used to fly? That could be why she was transferred to begin with.
