Ladyboy flight attendants in Thailand

February 2, 2011 · Posted in innovation 

Thai airline, PC Air, hired 3 ladyboys as flight attendants. Apart from the sexual politics, this makes a lot of sense. There are regulations for the minimum height of an flight attendant. They must be able to put bag in the over head bins and perform other physical tasks. It is also advantageous for flight attendants to be thin because it helps them move around on the plane. Unfortunately many Asian women are not tall enough to be flight attendants. Hiring ladyboys is an innovative approach to meet the requirements. Combine that with the outgoing personality and attention to appearance of a person who go so far as to change their gender and hiring katoey for flight attendants makes a lot of sense.
