Social Member
Three HIV-positive passengers have sued a Chinese budget airline after they were denied boarding on a plane, Global Times reported Friday.

A court in China's Shenyang province has accepted the case, which is viewed as a landmark anti-discrimination suit.

The HIV carriers were denied travel from Shenyang in northeast China to the northern city of Shijiazhuang by Spring Airlines July 28 after they informed airline staff they were HIV-positive. They have demanded an apology and compensation of about $8,000 from the airline.

Spring Airlines has also been accused of carrying a regulation stating that HIV-positive passengers should not be transported.
