Hello All! Today, a piece of information, which you won't believe, but you can check it out - it's in todays (Monday 27th) London "Daily Telegraph".
A female cabin crew, who has been with BMI airways (British Midland), was apparently told that, when she flew to the United Arab Emirates, she would have to wear the abaya (all black, just the face showing) and walk behind her male colleagues, regardless of whether they were senior or junior to her, when she was out in public in the UAE. She refused, so they FIRED her. This was apparently two years ago, Earlier this year, she appealed to an "unfair dismissals" tribunal. The tribunal found FOR BMI !!! They said that BMI was only following local culture!!!
Now, here's something you can ALL please do. Email the CEO of BMI in the United Kingdom. His name is Nigel Turner. His email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org Tell him what you think.
