According to the online articles I have
read about this case, six of the plaintiffs
worked on the flight deck and two were in the air handling department.
Do a Google search for "Paul Garner" and
"Fukushima" to obtain some superficial details
and a list of the plaintiffs. The news articles soon become repetitious.
