As we have already mentioned in an earlier post about sexy setwardess uniforms, not everybody can qualify for a stewardess job. Many airlines have height and weight requirements and even once you start working as a flight attendant, you may be released any time for loosing your shape.
Apparently Air India is one of these strict airlines. In December 2008 10 stewardesses were fired for being fat. They were given a chance to loose weight and reshape themselves, but they failed. I am sure many of us have experienced the bad feeling over the failure of loosing weight in a diet. Besides this bad feeling, the ladies even lost their jobs.
According to the full story by Times Online, they initiated a legal procedure, but the court said it was the right of the airline to apply strict rules regarding the appearance of the flight crew.
Well, it is up to everyone to decide what is better: seeing good young chicks on board and fire women at the age of 50, when they cannot get a job any more or seeing old and a little overweight stewardesses during the flight time.
