British Airways cabin crew member detained after testing positive for coronavirus but pilots go free

A member of staff for British Airways tested positive for coronavirus and the cabin crew were rushed  to a quarantine camp in Hong Kong.

The pilots were free to go home, whilst staff were rounded up and marched out of the Marriott Hotel.

In a series of Snapchat posts, stewardess Ellie Freeman said her colleagues were only given 30 minutes to pack their bags before being driven to a camp with twin rooms with barracks-style beds.

She said: ‘I’m honestly fuming. I feel a big breakdown coming on, so if anyone wants to Facetime me when I get there, it would be much appreciated. God, I am so scared.’

‘Love that from BA that the flight crew can go home and we all have to stay here. What the f***.’

A spokesperson for British Airways said: ‘Our teams in Hong Kong and London are helping to care for our cabin crew members, providing them with support and additional supplies to make sure their stay is as comfortable as possible, after the authorities requested they quarantine in accordance with local Covid-19 regulations.

‘We work closely with governments in every country we fly to, and always put the safety and wellbeing of our teams and customers at the heart of everything we do.’  Global247News Twitter
