Indian Airline Bans Male Flight Attendants

India air hostesses

Hearkening back to the days when Air Hostesses wore short-shorts, an Indian Airline announced it would hire exclusively female stewardesses. You’ll never believe the weird reason behind this bold decision.

As detailed in this article, low-fare Indian airline AirGo has decided it will hire only women for its airline attendant positions. The reason? Weight. In today’s tight economy, airline fuel can be expensive. GoAir figures that by hiring only women, they will save a bundle on jet fuel weight.

No word on why they couldn’t just hire thin, male flight attendants. As such, it just looks like another black eye of sexism on the Indian labor industry.
