Staff Petitions Air France to Cut Flights to Ebola Nations
The deadly virus has suddenly become a labor issue. Some 700 Air France workers worried about contracting Ebola have petitioned the airline — which serves more West African destinations than any other major carrier — to stop flights to nations beset by the virus. Some staff have even refused to board flights. Health officials say spreading Ebola via air travel is unlikely, but with the deadliest outbreak having killed 1,145, some prefer not to fly in the face of danger.
