Re: ExpressJet suspends F/A because of unwillingness to serve alcohol

This is getting out of hand. She knew the conditions and requirements of her job when applying.

Is that just a premeditated tactic to sue and make cash? Though I sincerely hope this case goes flying far out the window just like her F/A career.
