British airline masseuse awarded compensation.


A British judge has ruled that Virgin Atlantic has to pay GBP109,000 to an airline masseuse.

Elizabeth King, who had the job of providing shiatsu massage to travellers at London's Heathrow airport, reportedly took the airline to court when she could not continue working due to a repetitive strain injury that was caused by her work. The case was heard by Winchester County Court and the compensation is to be paid for loss of earnings, pain and suffering.

According to the Daily Mail, the airline said that it wishes the former employee well and that all parties can now draw a line under the case.
