Air France Stewardesses Refuse to Don Headscarf on Iran Flights

2

Air France is facing a backlash after instructing female crew to wear trousers during flights to Iran and to don a “loose-fitting jacket and headscarf” before leaving the plane in Tehran.

Staff representatives accused the airline of forcing female staff to wear clothes that are an “ostentatious religious sign” that goes against French law.

“Many female members of flight crews have told us that it’s out of the question they be obliged to wear headscarves. It’s not professional and they see it as an insult to their dignity,” said union leader Francoise Redolfi.
