Virgin Atlantic Lays Off All Their Nigerian Cabin Crew


According to multiple emails I have received from affected former staff, Richard Branson’s Virgin Atlantic Airways has laid off all their Nigerian cabin crew. They were allegedly only given three weeks notice and no severance package regardless of their length of service.

The air-hostesses they sacked were about 20 and last year, they closed down their Nigerian call centre and let go of all the Nigerian staff. Owner, Richard Branson had said he was weary about doing business in Nigeria? Could this be the gradual pull out?
