A baggage agent at SkyWest Airlines, who married his partner after the California Supreme Court legalized same-sex unions, claims that the airline is discriminating against him and his partner, according to an article by the San Francisco Chronicle.
Gilbert Caldwell says that SkyWest is breaking the law by refusing to give his husband the same free fares heterosexual spouses receive. According to the airline, “Gilbert Caldwell’s husband is his ‘travel companion,’ entitled to fly at a discount but not for free.”
Caldwell’s case is one of the first discrimination complaints that have been made since the passage of Proposition 8. Though the state court is still upholding Proposition 8, it ruled that “couples who married before the election could remain legally wed.”
