Attendants For Chinese Airline Say Their Uniform Is Too Sexy


Female flight attendants for a Chinese airline
say their uniforms, consisting of a pencil skirt and tight-fitting blouse, are just too
sexy. According to complaints from multiple flight
attendants, the Cathay Pacific flight attendant uniform, which can be seen in this video posted
to YouTube, shows too much skin and could lead to sexual harassment issues. Michelle Choi of the Flight Attendants Union
told the South China Morning Post: “Whenever a flight attendant bends down, her waistline
is exposed. We believe the company intentionally does this to make us look a bit sexier and
to let the passenger see more.” Flight attendants believe their uniform, which
was introduced back in 2011, is responsible for an increase in the number of sexual harassment
incidents that have been reported. In 1 out of every 10 flights, a female flight
attendant for Cathay Pacific will experience problems with sexual harassment, according
to NBC. And the Cathay Pacific flight attendants aren’t
the only ones who’ve been harassed by passengers. The Huffington Post reports 27 percent of
Hong Kong flight attendants have been sexually harassed on flights in the past year. That’s
according to a study released in February by China’s Equal Opportunities Commission.
In terms of the study, harassment includes anything involving patting, touching, kissing,
pinching or staring at a flight attendant in a sexual way. But the problem goes beyond just the uniforms.
Choi told USA Today when a Pacific Cathay flight attendant reports an incident with
a passenger, the airline isn’t all that helpful. “When you report it to the flight manager,
they always say it is the crew member’s decision whether or not to call the police. They tell
you, ‘It’s your decision. Do you want to delay the flight by calling the police?'” Cathay Pacific told the South China Morning
Post the airline has already modified the uniforms after employees complained in 2011.
The airline went on to say that any flight attendant who doesn’t feel comfortable in
his or her uniform is welcome to exchange it for a larger size.

  1. I remember being in LA airport several years ago and seeing what I think was Cathay Pacific flight attendants walk through the lobby wearing green uniforms, matching luggage and purses. It was quite interesting and impossible not to stare. Even my wife made a comment of how attractive they were. Then the called our flight for boarding and we got overweight middle aged women and homosexual men. Oh how lucky for us.

  2. Happy, attractive people make a flight enjoyable! The staff, I mean! Passengers, just don't be yobs in the air!

  3. In Asia, flight attendants are required to look good. That is why you can't find female FA's over the age of 55. Plus weight should be proportional to height, weight checks are done prior to a flight or on a monthly basis depends on the airline. Sexual harassment is common in Asia that is a reality. You don't see a 80 year old American flight attendant being sexually harassed right? unless you're a fetish pervert.

  4. That uniform is not sexy at all. And the airline is indeed based in hong kong, the special administrative region of china.

  5. Here's a thought, men, CONTROL YOURSELF! I have managed to live 40 years, and never once have done or said anything inappropriate to a woman. I'm getting sick of the responsibility of preventing sexual harassment/assaults being piled on the women. I was raised correctly, and yes, my attitude is holier than thou, but I don't give a damn.

  6. All flight attendants should be slim and in shape. I really hate it when a flight attendant walked down the aisle seats and hit 8 out ot 10 customers on the arm or shoulder. Because he/she is over weight, and big hip..
    Did they turn around and tell you sorry? Umm No….

  7. I love you I love it I love you Thank You ! (Private and Confidential) Thank You ! (Private and Confidential) I love you I love it I love you

  8. than you should said out loud and all must wearing ninja muslim militant clout so that pretty awesome you ask for it later on suicide bomb is on the way to your gate of death

  9. I feel sorry for these FA's. After a few drinks, some male passengers start to get "touch-feely" with the female FA's.

  10. Anyone with a little common sense would know Cathay Pacific is Hong Kong's airline..NOT a fucking dirty chinese airline
