Fears and rumours of Ebola stalk Freetown-Paris flight22 August 2014 | 13:58 | FOCUS News Agency
Anecdotes swirl around the cabin: apparently the same flight a few days ago carried three ill children, one with fever, two with diarrhoea. Could be Ebola, could be harmless childhood sickness, who knows? In any case, as the story goes, passengers asked to move seats.
And it's not just the passengers who are fearful. The crew is short-staffed because employees are not exactly beating down the door of the Airbus A330 to fly to or from Ebola-hit West Africa.
Air France is one of the few airlines still flying to affected countries, as nations close their borders for fear of the outbreak that has claimed around 1,350 lives.
