KLM Gay Flight Attendants Want to Avoid Iran


Gay flights attendants at Dutch airline KLM want to be excused from flying to Iran because the country is regarded as one of the world's most dangerous places for LGBT people, particularly for flight attendants whose work requires them to spend the night.

According to Radio Netherlands Worldwide, "Dutch newspaper AD reports that they asked KLM for alternative destinations but were turned down.

"KLM has already allowed a number of stewardesses not to serve on flights to Iran because 'unpleasant things happened to them there,' but the company says it cannot make any more exceptions. No further changes will be made unless it becomes really unsafe for personnel," reports Radio Netherlands Worldwide.

Currently, female cabin crew members working flights to Iran make the cultural concession of donning headscarves upon arrival in the country.
