Hot Air: Why Flight Attendants Are No Longer Cute, Apparently - Page 2
That being the case as well as the fact that it was now illegal to demand absurd requirements of female employees (e.g. weight, age, marital status and otherwise), flight attendants relaxed and aged naturally, likely to the chagrin of the old guard. Furthermore, the deregulation met with a serendipitous occurrence that increased in recent years, where women were finally in positions of power, and able to afford those still-more-expensive executive class seats. And surprisingly, these particular travelers couldn’t care less about the level of attractiveness of their sky-high server. Go figure.
We’ve come a long way since the early days of commercial flight and thankfully, there are bigger fish to fry in our current world of airline travel. With the preponderance of female imagery that abounds online and beyond, those die-hard fans of the old guard can get the visual stimulation that they’ve been looking for. They don’t need a real-life server in the skies to offer them the promise of coffee, tea and more. No, if they’re looking for a fantasy flight attendant, they can find that online – without having to purchase a round-fare ticket.
