Flight Attendant Fired For Excess Baggage (Her Own)

This is an odd one:  An Indian Airlines flight attendant was approached by company officials prior to boarding a flight she was working.  They asked her to step aside and get on a scale.  They believed she was over the company’s 63kg (138 pounds, or so) weight limit.  Turns out she was, and they fired her.  Now that flight attendant is suing Indian Airlines for their discriminatory policy.  The airline has grounded 140 staff members for weight-related issues.  The airline basically admits that it wants younger (thinner) flight attendants and is weeding out the older (less thinner) ones through this policy.  How progressive!
