I know DL, AA, UAL, Spirit and Southwest have in the last couple of years. I'm sure others have too.

Should not be an issue thanks to the ADA.

Yet United ask if your medical has ever been denied in the application.

Mine was denied last year and it took me 4 months to get it back. Just curious if anyone had had a similar problem and it worked out favorably in the long term.

Denied or deferred? Big difference.

I can't speak about wether it would be detrimental to getting hired but I can tell you, that as LCA for Delta, about 30% of the medicals I check giving Line Checks have a special issuance.
