FORT WORTH (1080 KRLD) - An arbitration board is siding with American Airlines flight attendants, calling American's sick leave policy sexist and unfair.

The flight attendants complained that, under this policy, they accumulated points which could lead them to being fired.

The flight attendants, predominately women , argued the mostly male pilots have no such system.

The arbitration board ruled that certain elements of the sick leave policy are not consistent with the flight attendants' contract with the airline.
