Transcript FEBRUARY 13, 1987/ MONTROSE VOICE 15 British Airline Must Hire Men LONDON (UPI)—Dan Air, which flies to British, European and Mideast destinations, denied a charge by the gov em ment-funded Equal Opporuni- ties Commission Monday, Feb. 9, that Dan had justified its women-only policy on the grounds that 30 percent of men seeking jobs as flight stewards were homosexual. According to the commission, Dan Air said it believed cabin staff were "sexually promiscuous" and thathomo- sexual men would pose "a danger to the health and safety of passengers, and existing employees." Dan Air, which employs seven female pilots, denied in a statement it ever claimed its cabin staffs were promiscuous, but said it already had voluntarily changed its "women only" policy as a result of the commission's investigation. It said it was planning to recruit about 20 men to work as flight attendants. The airline said it had hired only women forthe 1000 available cabin jobs because their customers like "a bit of glamour" and preferred them to men. According to the commission, the airline had held that AIDS was associated with homosexual men, that it could be transmitted by blood and saliva and therefore passed on to or from passengers when staff cut themselves at work or when passengers required artificial resuscitation. The commission, set up to monitor Britain's 12-year-old act outlawing sex discrimination in the workplace, said that on medical advice it dismissed Dan Air's case and ordered it to change its hiring practices and to employ male cabin attendants on an equal basis with women.
