BA distances itself from Christian worker's crucifix case

The European Court of Human Rights has upheld a claim against the UK Government for a failure to protect European Convention rights.

British Airways was not a party to this legal action. It was pursued against the UK government.

Our own uniform policy was changed in 2007 to allow Miss Eweida and others to wear symbols of faith and she and other employees have been working under these arrangements for the last six years.

Miss Eweida has worked continuously for British Airways for 13 years.
