Not exactly travel related, but it does involve an airline. . .

Airline Sued for Sex Discrimination Over Viagra

Quote:
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - American Airlines, the world's largest carrier, was sued for allegedly paying for Viagra pills for its male employees but denying women employees health benefits to pay for birth control pills, pap smears or infertility treatment.

The lawsuit was filed Thursday in federal court in Los Angeles by lawyers for a 36-year-old American Airlines flight attendant who was told that her need for infertility treatment would not be covered by the company's standard medical plan.
