Air France 'let only males serve Strauss-Kahn'
(AFP) 15 hours ago
PARIS Air France issued orders for only male staff to serve Dominique Strauss-Kahn when the former IMF boss -- accused of attempted rape in New York -- travelled on its planes, a report said Thursday.
Le Parisien newspaper also said that lawyers of Strauss-Kahn's accuser were calling for testimony from Air France female stewards who allegedly suffered inappropriate behaviour by him.
A spokesman for the airline however responded to the report by saying that "Air France formally denies having given any instruction about the composition of its crews."
Le Parisien said lawyers of Nafissatou Diallo -- the African hotel maid who made the accusations against the ex-International Monetary Fund chief -- had received at least two testimonies from air crew who had been importuned.
The paper quoted the lawyers as saying that "this inexplicable mindset which enables him to abuse women is further proof which gives credibility to the aggression suffered by Ms Diallo on May 14."

The AF FAs (females) are cold as ice. The males are much nicer.
I was on BA once going to South Africa. My male FA gave me one drink and wouldn’t give me another. At 6’4 and 250, apparently I scared him. Different airlines, different FAs.
How about we stop working around this mutt and consign him to the ****can where he belongs.
He’s one guy, we can get by without him.
The average age of FAs on Singapore is around 21, the average weight is on the order of 100 lb and the demeanor is always extremely nice.
Now, for service, I prefer Singapore, but I know I can't count on any of them helping me (6'2", 240 lb) in the event of an emergency. I would take an airline like Singapore over an American-based airline any day.
BTW: I fly internationally several times a year and have been to 16 different countries all over the world on many, many different airlines........
Proud achievement of flight attendants union. These women act as if they had nothing to lose.:-)
That's typical Frenchwomen, unless they find you attractive.:-) It's not something peculiar to flight attendants.
They are the best without any question. Some of my mates say that Cathay Pacific is just is good, but I do not know?

Who says DSK wants only women?
Maybe he only chase women so far. Of course, it could change. You never know.
