British Ariways worker awaits outcome of final appeal against crucifix necklace ban

A suspended British Airways worker has attended a final appeal over a ban on wearing a cross at work.

No decision was made, but Nadia Eweida has vowed to continue her fight to openly wear a cross on a necklace at work at Heathrow Airport.

Eweida claims the suspension is discriminatory, especially since the airline allows Sikh employees to wear traditional iron bangles and Muslim workers to wear head scarves.

She has been on unpaid leave since BA managers said she could not visibly wear her cross at the check-in counter.

BA has said it will review its uniform policy in light of the media storm the story has provoked.
