desertfool: Then there was an airline in Vietnam where the flight attendants had an impromptu bikini fashion show on a flight:
Mr. Coffee Nerves: The first airline to go All-Midget Flight Crew will soar to profitability heretofore unimagined.
DO NOT WANT Poster Girl: Gah, give me a cute chipper flight attendant any day over the evil cranks that pass for FA nowadays. I've had run ins with rude FAs and they're Napoleans with wormwood and estrogen. No, chicken, you are not my boss for the duration of the flight. Give me my soda and GTF away.
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.<img src="http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m9r72xkEKp1rn2y3ao1_500.jpg">Waitresses get hired for their looks, to a certain degree. Why should sky waitresses be different?

EkimProx: Breast reduction surgery would make it lighter too.
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/

theflatline: LAN and Avianca usually have stunning stewardesses.
TheMaskedArmadillo: FloydA: powhound: Bras are quite heavy as well. Just think of all that additional savings that could be heaped into the corporate cookie jar!Charles_Nelson_Reilly: The uniforms they're wearing in the article's pic negate the advantages that are gained in recruiting.I am beginning to envision a solution that combines the best of both observations: naked flight attendants! It's obvious, when you think about it.Not if you have the aisle seat on AA...think about it...

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.
qualtrough: the feelings of extreme bitterness that a lot of Western flight attendants seem to have.
