British Airways to review its policy on crucifixes

British Airways will review its uniforms policy following a row over a check-in worker told to stop wearing a crucifix.Ms Nadia Eweida, 55, has refused to return to work at Heathrow Airport since bosses told her last month she could not wear a necklace bearing a small cross over her uniform. She said she did not want to hide the cross because “Jesus has to be glorified”. She lost an appeal against the decision last week, although she has the right to a second appeal. Ms Eweida said the airline’s decision was good news, and she hoped it would help her win her case.Leading figures in the Church of England had appealed to the airline to reconsider its stand. British Airways announced the review hours after the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, said talks had begun on a possible sale of the Church of England’s £10.25 million ($25 million) worth of shares in the airline.Source:
