JAL cabin attendant caught AH1N1

A 22-year-old Singaporean cabin attendant of Japan Airlines is infected with H1N1 after traveling to New York and Tokyo.

According to Japan Today,

The 22-year-old flight attendant had traveled as a member of JAL’s cabin crew to New York on June 6. She left New York for Tokyo the following day, the ministry said in a statement.

She felt sick while working as a cabin crew on her return flight last Friday.


Sounds like the flight to JFK is JL006 on June 6 since that's the only JAL flight on to JFK on Saturday. It is unclear to me whether she return to Tokyo on June 7 on JL005 or on either JL047 or JL005 June 12. It says the cabin attendant left the next day which should be June 7 but then it also says she got sick on her return flight last Friday (June 12). Maybe by return flight, they meant return flight from Tokyo to Singapore? That's a lot of time in Tokyo and can she fly back the next day after a long-haul flight? It's possible that she fly back (either as a cabin crew or as a passenger on the next day and return to Singapore on June 12...until there are more info, we wouldn't know...)
