    Two dozen black pilots alleged in a lawsuit on Tuesday that United Continental Holdings, the parent of United Airlines, passed them over for management promotions because of race.
    The world's biggest carrier denied the allegations and said it would fight them in court.
    The veteran aviators alleged a long history of discriminatory behavior across multiple U.S. states. Their suit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California in San Francisco.
    Most of those involved in the suit worked for pre-merger United. The complaint specifically addresses promotion issues dating to 2009.
