A request gay KLM flight attendants to be excused from flights to Iran because gays are threatened there has been refused by the airline, Radio Netherlands reports:
"Iran is one of the most intolerant countries in the world when it comes to homosexuality, and the stewards – who have to spend the night there because of their work – do not feel safe…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.
The FNV trade union confederation is aware of the dispute but says finding a solution is complicated."
'Unpleasant things' happen to gays too.
