Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Qatar Airways cabin crew to wear hazmat suits

Safety is our number one priority; any airline says so. Indeed, pilots make their best to fly safely and cabin crew guides and instruct the passengers on board to abide by the safety regulations and requirements. Nowadays, safety doesn’t necessarily mean to prevent accidents or troubles from happening. Passengers and crewmembers are all concerned about clear and present danger. Covid-19 and hygiene.

As airports are adding new safety and screening measures, including disinfection booth, quick blood testing, and sniffing dogs, some airlines are requiring their passengers to wear face guards or masks during flights. But that won’t be enough to ensure safety in an enclosed environment like an airplane cabin. Flight attendants have numerous close contacts with passengers during flights. They need to be protected the most to avoid infecting and being infected by the passengers. So, Qatar Airways, Qatar’s flag carrier, introduced a protected suit to be worn by cabin crew over their uniforms during flights in addition to safety goggles, gloves, and a mask. Will the passengers feel safer or scared? Do you want to eat an inflight meal or drink soda that is served by such a heavily protected attendant?

Enjoy reading the article and seeing the photos and think if you want to wear a hazmat suit during the flight, too.
