British Airways has compensated a passenger who was "humiliated' over its policy of not allowing single male flyers to sit next to solo child travellers on its planes.

Mr Fischer was on a flight from London back to his home in Luxembourg on 20 April 2009 when his pregnant wife Stephanie asked him to swap seats so she could sit next to the window. 


 Я, видимо, все-таки переоцениваю свое знание английского  - imho,  single male не может иметь pregnant wife. Но ведь у BBC и British Airways английский родной. Прям не знаю, что и думать.

The court will weigh whether New Haven's decision to scrap a promotion exam because too few minorities passed violates the civil rights of top-scoring white applicants.

The discrimination lawsuit was brought by 20 white firefighters — one also is Hispanic.

The city argues going ahead with the promotions based on the test results would have risked a lawsuit claiming the exams had a "disparate impact" on minorities.

A federal appeals court in New York upheld a lower court ruling dismissing the lawsuit.

Совсем не трудное дело, по-моему.
