Northwest Airlines and the Wayne County Airport Authority have been accused of discriminating against physically disabled passengers.
A federal lawsuit filed in Detroit on behalf of five plaintiffs alleges violations of federal laws, including the Americans with Disabilities Act.
It says Metro airport and Northwest dropped disabled passengers to the floor, failed to provide boarding assistance and damaged wheelchairs. The suit seeks no monetary damages.
The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press reports Northwest spokeswoman Michelle Aguayo Shannon says the airline was "disappointed" in the filing of the lawsuit.
Airport spokesman Michael Conway says providing service to disabled passengers is something the airport authority takes seriously.
