    An American Airlines flight attendant whose co-workers accused her of smuggling her pet rats onto aircraft in her underwear and pantyhose is suing the airline.

    A lawsuit filed last month in a New York court claims that Louann Giambattista, 55, a flight attendant with American Airlines since 1979, was "outrageously discriminated against" because of a "perceived mental disability" resulting in a "hostile work environment."

    The suit is filed under the Americans With Disabilities Act.
