Viking: Not so. I was a captain in a non-seniority airline. 2 captains employed at the same base, in the same year, (I the more experienced in total but both of us new on type), our contracts were copy/paste documents. Due to a special handshake deal done under the table the other guy received unjustified expenses to cover costs incurred by both of us that I had to pay myself. The company secretary identified my claim as 'employed equally but being treated less favourably'. The use of discrimination was not applicable and would have been inappropriate anyway. Under employment law it was 'less favourable'. We were 2 individuals who were totally replaceable and mirror images. I claimed and won.
