December 10, 2019

A 79-year-old former flight attendant is suing Delta Air Lines for firing her, telling Inside Edition she believes she was let go of because of her age. Ida Gomez Llanos says during her 57 years of service, she received praise by employers for her work. She says her attendance was also spotless. “Luckily, my health is excellent. I never get sick,” she told Inside Edition. She says she was abruptly fired eight months ago after somebody claimed that she took a carton of milk from an airplane.
