Flight attendants: Do you think these outfits are too revealing?
Flight attendants in Malaysia have been deemed to be dressed too provocatively on certain airlines.
Malaysian Politicians Senator Abdullah Mat Yasim and Senator Megat Zulkarnain Omardin have asked the aviation commission to investigate, according to The Straits Times.
Airlines such as Malindo and AirAsia have been accused, with the outfits being ‘too revealing’.
Firefly, another Malaysian airline has also been included in the discussion.
AirAsia currently have a uniform with white shirts, red jackets and red skirts with a slit, whilst Malindo has a white cardigan and purple patterned maxi skirts.
However, due to their tight-fitting nature, they have caused concern over the impression they may leave on travellers.
During a parliament session this month, Omardin stated: “My wife is worried whenever I fly alone on Malindo or AirAsia. This is a real hassle for me.
“The Malaysian Aviation Commission must really look into this.”
