Twin sisters (with severe myopia that is correctable to 20/20 vision) contend that UAL failure to hire them as global airline pilots was discrimination on the basis of disability and a violation of ADA Title I.
UAL argued that they were not disabled under the statutory definition and therefore were not owed ADA protections—i.e., could not bring a complaint under ADA.
Sisters argued that they met the definition because they are substantially limited in a MLA of seeing or regarded as substantially limited in a MLA of working.
10th Circuit Court of appeals held for UAL on all counts and the case was dismissed.
