Virgin therapist awarded £100,000 for RMI – that’s repetitive massage injury
By Daily Telegraph Correspondent.

For the passengers about to fly the Atlantic it was a welcome, stress-busting treat. And for masseuse Elizabeth King it was a chance to carry on doing the job she loved.
But the complimentary massages for the rich and famous as they waited in Virgin Atlantic\'s exclusive Heathrow Clubhouse were to come at a heavy price for the 28-year-old beauty therapist - and also for the airline.

The Private Jet Set
By Farhad Heydari

Just recently, Lufthansa unveiled the world’s only terminal exclusively for first-class passengers, and announced the start of business-class-only flights across the Atlantic.

A pressure fault is suspected of having caused a Boeing 737 to crash north of Athens two months ago, killing all 121 on board.

HOW TO SLEEP AT 40,000FT
On a long-haul economy flight? The land of nod is the place to be, and Chris Haslam can get you there

A light supper, a good night’s sleep and a fine morning have often made a hero of the same man, who, by an indigestion, a restless night and a rainy morning would have proved a coward,” said Lord Chesterfield. Easy for him to say, sprawled on a flat bed in First and nibbling stilton while trolley dollies pour his port. For us chickens cooped up in the cheap seat, sleep – in an airless space 17in wide by 32in deep by 42 in high (if you’re no good with figures, consider that a Zanussi fridge comes in a larger carton and usually arrives more chilled) – remains a ludicrously abstract concept.

Flight Attendants Sue FAA, Labor Over Workplace Safety
The Association of Flight Attendants (AFA) sued FAA and Department of Labor Secretary Elaine Chao for failing to ensure the health and safety of airline crews, who are subject to hazards such as turbulence, sudden changes in cabin air pressure, unwidely service carts, exposure to toxic chemicals, unruly and sick passengers and threats of terrorism. “Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, the Secretary of Labor is empowered to ensure ‘safety and healthful working conditions,’ unless another federal agency exercises authority,” said AFA. In 1975, FAA took over control of the health and safety of crew members on civil aircraft, but, said AFA, “has failed to recognize the aircraft cabin as a workplace.”
