    The Federal Aviation Administration says it's investigating a decision to exclude Chick-fil-A from an airport concession contract in San Antonio over opposition to the fast-food chain owners' record on LGBT issues.

    The San Antonio Express-News reports the FAA told San Antonio officials Friday it's investigating complaints the city-owned airport discriminated "against a private company due to the expression of the owner's religious beliefs."

    City Attorney Andy Segovia said his office is reviewing the FAA's notice.
