HIV and working in the travel industry
« on: September 03, 2006, 01:03:21 PM »

Does anybody know if there are any restrictions on people having HIV and working for a passenger carrier company, from cabin crew upwards? I read on here a while back that someone found out they were positive following a test with Lufthansa for a job, and they werent allowed to work for them.

I thought it was illegal to discriminate on HIV grounds, is this not the case? I have a future career in travel looming and , as I am positive, I am dreading anything bad happening

Any advice would be much appreciated

I am a flight attendant at Iberia Airlines of Spain. www.iberia.com I disclosed my status to the airline`s medical service one month ago. The Dr. told me there were many people in the company with HIV. I know there is at least one captain and one copilot that had to give up flying for serveral years. Now he is back flying.
The other day I was in Oviedo and the Dr. from Iberia called me to my celular phone to see how was I doing and reminded me I could count on him if I needed any help.
