Looks Still Matter?


Since being a flight attendant first became a job, it has long been the practice of the industry to hold female flight attendants to certain visual standards. The requirements of looking a certain way and being a certain age may be antiquated and downright discriminatory in any other profession, the airline industry still holds fast to these “standards”. For example, only recently did a major international airline make trousers available as part of the standard uniform and make wearing makeup optional. Instead of giving a weight requirement, airlines list that “weight must be in proportion to height” as a standard, and that applicants must meet a body mass index between 18 and 22 — which according to the body mass index rating, is underweight to the lower side of normal.
