Lesbian couple sues airline, claiming discrimination on LAX flight
A same-sex couple is suing Allegiant Air, alleging they were harassed by a flight attendant because they are gay and wrongfully escorted off a plane as they tried to return home from a cremation service in Los Angeles last fall. The allegations in the Los Angeles Superior Court lawsuit filed Tuesday by Stacy Ziegler King and Christina King include civil rights violations, discrimination, breach of contract and both intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress.

One of the lesbians is an attorney - a warning sign regardless of the minority in question or the possibility of discrimination.
What's not clear is whether all the children sitting in the specific row without a parent or guardian, as may well be required on the flight, were, in fact, minors. The kids go from early teens to 23. On the relevant, second flight the article says the two moms were sitting together with the 13 year old. If it's written accurately that means the other kids were sitting with the 23 year old...not a minor.
That would suggest the flight attendant merely wanted to split the two lesbians up to stop the described PDAs of holding hands and putting a head on a shoulder or for some other irrelevant reason.

There is more to this than the article states. A lot of gay's work as flight attendants (F/A), and I would be surprised if this is all about the F/A being anti-gay. I would suggest an anti-gay F/A would not last very long in that business. There is more to this story, like maybe the passengers were being rude, or something else.
