(CNN)   Sure it's discriminatory to hire only hot, skinny, nubile women as flight attendants. Sure it may have been previously found illegal. But it saves fuel, dammit. So bring the hot flight attendants back   (edition.cnn.com) divider line 33

Stewardesses are really safety compliance professionals.  They are there to enforce the FAA regulations that keep you safe.  For example, if you have your Kindle on during takeoff, you could easily take control of the plane.  If the plane takes a nosedive at 500 miles an hour, the stewardess' reminder to get into crash position could save your life.

bingethinker: SacriliciousBeerSwiller: I love the denial on the part of attendants that part of their job is to be attractive. Sorry, but it has a direct impact on the traveler's experience (air travel is unpleasant enough as it is), and that equals money. I'm a liberal guy, but these complaints make as much sense as a fat guy complaining that Chippendale's won't hire him.

Waitresses get hired for their looks, to a certain degree. Why should sky waitresses be different?


This is actually a very sad manifestation of misogyny in our society.  Women would GREATLY prefer to load thousands of pounds of luggage into plane after plane, just like they would MUCH RATHER spend a ten-hour shift in a hot and sweaty kitchen.  It's the same thing in the construction industry; women would PREFER to shovel hot asphalt instead of holding up traffic signs.  We're just not letting them show what they can do.

CSB time:

In April of 2001 i went to flight attendant school in Dallas/Ft. Worth for American Airlines. In my class there were 19 women, 2 married men, a gay guy and me. Out of the 19 women, 3 were really hot, 5 were good looking, 4 were doable and the rest.....eh. The second day the hottest one confessed to me that she was a stripper while I was giving her a massage on my bed. A very good friend of mine is a chef in Dallas, I planned on hanging out with him at the restaurant, so I invited Cali to go with me. Told my friend Pete about her "She's a stripper? We're all gonna fark her!" I tell him I want to come in like that scene in Goodfellas where everybody knows Ray Loitta and they give him a special table, ect. So Cali and I arrive in a rented red convertible, I give the valet the secret word, and from that point it was "Mr. FarkinHostile! So good to see you!". Took us through the kitchen, everyone greeted me by name, it was totally cool. We get taken to the Chef Table, and the first thing Cali does is order a $200 bottle of wine. "Yikes", I think, and eventually the bill comes to almost $400. As I go for my wallet, Cali throws her sugar daddys credit card on the table. I tell her "This doesn't mean I'm going to sleep with you" We go out drinking with Pete and his roommate Andy, we hit Panteras strip club, we get all farked up. On the drive home, Andy has Calis shirt off and is sucking her tits. We go back to Petes place and proceed to gang bang her.

That was the third day. I was there for a month. Flight attendant school was crazy for a single straight dude.

ThinkingGuy: Interesting list from Patrick Smith showing the percentage of various planes' weight that that passengers comprise (crew is, of course, a small percentage of that percentage):
http://www.askthepilot.com/airfares-by-the-pound/


Yeah, like the average American weighs 190 pounds. Maybe the average fourth grader.
But you have a point. I have a counterpoint. The problem with fat people in the air isn't the force with which the earth attracts them. I honestly don't even notice that when I'm flying next to some sausage encased in 48" polyester trousers. What I do notice is, there's a limited amount of space in a plane, and the packing problem becomes non-trivial when you're talking about shoehorning zoo exhibits into that space.
The military makes perfectly good cargo planes. Those planes have lifts and winches and rollers and all the other accoutrements that would make flying convenient for fat people. Why do they need to be on passenger planes?

/Stop hiring twentysix year olds

They can't reach the over head bins.

I thought of little people and child labour instantly, because I understand the economics and the airline mentality, but sadly, they are disqualfied because they are too short and often have breathing problems due to their internal organs being packed too tight, etc.

No, here's what you need"

1. Really skinny women who can:

a) maintain control of an airplane full of misbehaving British soccer hooligans;
b) carry and lift ten times their weight;
c) keep people in their seats even when the airplane is flying upside down through major turbulence
d) serve food and drinks to 700 people in 7 minutes.

In as few words as possible: little Chinese grandmothers.

They still can't reach the overhead bins, but they'll climb and stand on your head if necessary. That'll teach you to carry on bags that should be checked through. You'll have to fight them for you bags if you want to put them in the bin yourself to prevent damage.

When airlines have the steel balls to hire little Chinese grandmothers, nobody will be able to understand the sky waitress safety instructions, so we will all be equally sky cattle.

Of course the party will still be in First Class general seating and the First Class private cabins. And there will be a lot fewer Chinese restaurants. I assume the Lebanese and Pakistanis will complete their take-over of these.

No farking shiat!? When did stewardesses stop being hot chicks (even if some of them were getting a little long in the tooth, they still held themselves together with a good old-fashioned calorie-restricted diet, Virginia Slims and Jazzercise) and turn into a bunch of lunch-ladies and balding gay dudes? I'm 40 on the dot, but I swear when I was a kid the air waitresses were all fairly attractive, skinny women. Seriously. What. The. Fark. Fewer Bruce's and Helgas, and more Bunnys and Heathers please.

According to some internet guy's napkin math, each nine pounds of extra weight on a thousand mile flight requires one more pound of gas to fly. Godspeed bikini airlines. Reach for that bottom line.

I hollowed out a space in a hardback book to slip my kindle into. Read it throughout the flight with skybiatches none the wiser.

Businesses are allowed to discriminate if it serves a legitimate business purpose. I remember reading about a barber with a "no black people" sign who got away with it because he doesn't work on what google tells me is actually called "Afro-textured hair". (Other "legitimate" examples are churches hiring only members of their flock, female gyms only hiring women, businesses that help disabled people get jobs only hiring disabled people, etc) Claiming they are discriminating to save fuel might actually fly...

It also saves money because you only have to pay them 78% of what you pay male skywaitresses.
