Japan Airlines sued over job cuts

Former pilots and cabin attendants say older staff bore the brunt as jobs were shed.

    Former pilots and cabin attendants of Japan Airlines have filed a lawsuit, challenging the carrier’s decision to dismiss them at the end of last year.

    They say the carrier cut more jobs than needed and that older employees were targeted.

    The lawsuit comes exactly 12 months after the debt-saddled airline filed for bankruptcy protection.
