Emirates airline has had to change flight attendant and pilot rosters on services to the United States following the sudden U.S. travel ban on seven Muslim-majority countries, an airline spokeswoman said Sunday.

‘The recent change to the U.S. entry requirements for nationals of 7 countries applies to all travelers and flight operations crew,’ the spokeswoman said in emailed comments.

‘We have made the necessary adjustments to our crewing, to comply with the latest requirements.’

Based in Dubai, Emirates flies daily into 11 U.S. cities including New York, Washington D.C. and Los Angeles.
