10 STRANGE Requirements To Work As A Flight Attendant
7 Outdated Appearance Rules For Air Hostesses
Female flight attendants may now be able to wear trousers to work but here are some outdated rules that they still have to swear by…
After a two-year dispute over the airline’s dress code, all female British Airways cabin crew have now been given official permission to wear trousers. Yes, you read that correctly, only now.
Female recruits after 2012 were forced to wear skirts unless they had official medical or religious exemption until last week when British Airways announced ‘while trousers are not a standard part of this [Ambassador] uniform, colleagues wishing to wear them can now request this through their manager.’
The recent decision has prompted global praise, giving hope to the cabin crews at Ryanair, Virgin Atlantic and other airlines where skirts are still mandatory. We however had a different reaction: Seriously? Only now?!
It seems baffling that in a country where women won the right to vote almost a century ago, we still have to fight for the right to wear trousers to work.
Sexism seems to be alive and well at 30,000 feet and being a flight attendant for most airlines comes with a sizeable appearance rulebook, some of which is pretty outdated…
Every female flight attendant must wear heels at the minimum height of 2-3 inches. Flights are exhausting enough in Stan Smiths, let alone a pair of stilletos so we sympathise entirely.
