Veiled Female Flight Attendants on EgyptAir

Sunday was the first time that veiled female flight attendants served passengers on EgyptAir.  This is the first time veiled flight attendants have served passengers that include secular passengers and Islamic passengers who are trying to change the identity of the country.  The flight attendants wore their Islamic headscarves, known as the hijab, on all flights bound for Arab countries.  Later this month other flight attendants will also be able to wear hijab, when the airline brings in uniform headscarves.

Abdul Aziz Fadel, deputy chairman of the EgyptAir Holding Company, said that it is not mandatory for female flight attendants to wear hijab and that they are making it possible based on the wishes of these women.  Those who do choose to wear the new uniform hijab, will still be able to maintain the highest quality of service to all passengers on the fights.  This is a momentous decision for the 80-year-old airline.

The above article is a summary.  Please see the source article at Google News.
