Air France ruled that only male cabin crew were allowed to serve Dominique Strauss-Kahn, currently fighting accusations he attempted to rape a New York hotel maid. The claim was reported Thursday by Le Parisien newspaper, which also says lawyers for the former IMF chief's alleged victim, Nafissatou Diallo, are soliciting testimony from female flight attendants at the national carrier, who may have been subjected to inappropriate behavior by the Frenchman."Air France has a few hundred complaints from clients, employees, crew members who met the man suspected of having abused your client Madame Diallo," the letter alleged, adding, "it was decided by Air France that 'only male employees should be deployed in the first class cabin when this client [Strauss-Kahn] was traveling.' French magazine Le Point reported that just moments before Port Authority detectives arrived, he had barked at an attendant, "What a nice ass!" as she prepared the cabin for takeoff. [NYP]
