U.S. Airways is accused of refusing to let two young African American men into first class until they changed their clothes into more “appropriate attire.”

Brothers McCraig and Miles Warren are suing the airline for discrimination, claiming that when they tried to board the plane in Denver, they were repeatedly told by an employee that their outfit – jeans, hooded sweatshirts and baseball caps violated an alleged first-class dress code.

According to the federal discrimination lawsuit which was filed on Wednesday, they were told to change into button-down shirts, dress shoes and slacks if they wanted to sit in first class and were told that was the airline’s policy.
