Air France stewardesses refuse company edict to don headscarf on Iran flights

Air France is compelling female members of its cabin crew to wear more modest attire and a headscarf on renewed flights to the Iranian capital of Tehran – a move that is causing consternation among its workforce.
According to The Guardian, the airline is “facing a mutiny” from staff members who object to being forced to wear garb that constitutes “ostentatious religious sign.”
The airline’s union has raised the matter with management, which is standing firm on the required dress code just weeks before Air France resumes three daily flights to the Iranian capital.
