It's quite normal in Japan to wear gloves when different people use the same controls. It's the same with bus drivers and even Taxi drivers. They use gloves. Probably for reasons of hygiene.- Stefan

Its a hygiene thing but has a huge added bonus.Take a look at a twenty year old JAL flightdeck and all the original decla sare still perfect with hardly any wear at all.Keeps the flightdecks in pristine condition to say the least,well at least compared to western ones anyway.Darren
