BRITISH Airways cabin crew are at the centre of a diplomatic row after being confined to a quarantine “prison” for 14 days in Hong Kong.
The 13 employees were marched from their hotel and taken to a compound after stewardess Inty Neveah tested positive for Covid-19.
She was confined to hospital and a pal said: “She has not eaten since being on the plane and we are worried for her. “They brought her only bread and water.”
The pilots on Monday’s flight from Heathrow were deemed not at risk and returned to London. BA confirmed last night it was in talks with the British consulate over its staff in the Chinese former British colony.
British diplomats and airline bosses are asking China to allow the crew to return to the UK and quarantine here. The chaos was sparked after Inty, who tested positive on arrival in Hong Kong, was reportedly locked in isolation in a hospital room in Hong Kong at the insistence of Chinese authorities.
The rest of her crew – who had been working on Flight BA31 – were forced to self-isolate, and were allegedly not supplied keys to the basic rooms which one stewardess described as being like “a literal concentration camp”.
