(CBS News) – Thirteen flight attendants hope a lawsuit against United Airlines will get their jobs back. They were fired for refusing to fly after seeing an ominous note on the plane.

On July 14, 2014, Grace Lam and 12 other flight attendants, all of whom had been on the job at least 17 years, were preparing United Airlines Flight 869 when they learned graffiti had been discovered on the fuselage. The flight had been scheduled to fly from San Francisco to Hong Kong.

“She showed us the picture of the graffiti together with two faces that was taken on her phone. That’s the first time I saw the graffiti,” Lam said.

Two faces and the words “BYE BYE” were scrawled in oil along the tail section, nearly 30 feet off the ground.
