The head of EgyptAir holding company Hussam Kamal has announced that from now on stewardesses on the national carrier will be allowed to wear hijab, and stewards and pilots will be allowed to wear beards.
The decision comes, Mr Kamal said, in response to court rulings to that effect.
For the moment, he said, a committee is deciding on a new uniform for stewardesses that should include a headdress in accordance with hijab and will include trousers instead of the traditional skirt.
The matter aroused not scathing comments by seculars, with activist Nabil Sharaf Eddin asking if the day will come when pilots wear jilbab and stewardesses niqab?
