American Airlines has filed a lawsuit against former flight attendant Gailen David and several other unnamed American employees for publishing private passenger information.

Sky Talk readers may remember David as the flight attendant who posted satirical videos about the Fort Worth-based carrier under the guise “Aluminum Lady” and on his blog Dear Sky Steward. David was fired by the carrier a few weeks ago.

The suit, filed in Tarrant County on Tuesday, alleges that David posted flight information of various passengers on his website, including former American chief executive Don Carty and current AMR board member Judith Rodin.
