YAHOO | The Malay Mail Online

SEPANG, July 19 ― Some flight attendants are now terrified of taking to the skies after Flight MH17 was shot down, the National Union of Flight Attendants Malaysia (Nufam) said today.


Nufam President, Ismail Nasaruddin speaks to reporters during a press conference …

Nufam president Ismail Nasaruddin also said crew members were demoralised, pointing out that the crash of the Malaysia Airlines (MAS) jetliner occurred just four months after Flight MH370 disappeared in March.

“We’ve received reports of crew members being unable to fly for reasons of being affected,” Ismail told a press conference here.

“We must find the truth to this act of mass murder,” he said, adding that he did not have the number of flight attendants who are now afraid of flying.

Flight MH17 is believed to have been struck on Thursday by a missile in a region in eastern Ukraine controlled by pro-Russia separatists, killing all 298 on board.

There were 283 passengers and 15 crew members aboard the Boeing 777 commercial jet.

    Working hazard too great and career change is a real option.
    Simultaneously, new workers with less training will increase future airline risks…
    Airline industry already suffering reduced passenger citing protests to privacy invasion and cancer causing energy scans by TSA state sponsored terror prior to each flight.
