AirAsia Passenger Complains Over Flight Crew's 'Disgusting' Attire
Whatever their gender, flight attendants are some of the most beautiful people on Earth. Even if your plane's in the middle of a nose-dive, they're unflustered, polite, and always look great.
But one woman in New Zealand seems to have higher standards after she complained about the flight crew of airline AirAsia, saying their uniforms are ruining Malaysia's reputation.
Dr. June Robertson, from Wellington on New Zealand's North Island, wrote a letter to Malaysian senator Hanafi Mamat complaining she had seen the flight crew's boobs and underwear.
In the letter, June welcomed the senator's known objections to the airline's uniforms, saying that she too dislikes the female flight attendants' 'extremely short' skirts. It must have really cheesed her off if she needed to write a letter about it.
"I felt very offended by the extremely short skirts these females wear on AirAsia," June wrote. "I found it quite disgusting myself as not everyone appreciates this."
June, who described herself as a 'middle-aged professional woman' who has been to Malaysia twice a year for a decade, went on to outline two incidents where she saw a bit too much of Air Asia flight staff's for her liking.
In the first, she relayed a 'terrible' occasion where she'd seen a flight attendant's underwear while the crew member bent over in the supermarket at Kuala Lumpur International Airport.
She also reported sitting on a flight from Auckland to Kuala Lumpur in October when a flight attendant 'had her blouse opened and I could see the top of her breasts'. Shock horror!
Apparently, June objected to the flight attendant - who was also bending over at the time - and told her to close her jacket. Presumably she should have been wearing a full coat instead?
"One of the things we like about Malaysia is the fact your women do not dress like prostitutes and the people are very respectful of others," June wrote. "The airline is letting your reputation down."
"The males however are very respectfully dressed and very professional," she added. Well, that's good to know.
The senator June wrote to, Hanai Mamat, is a known critic of AirAsia's uniform. According to Free Malaysia Today, he is on the record as saying that Air Asia's flight crew should wear 'sharia-compliant' uniforms.
Mamat said tourists might get the wrong idea of Malaysia if stewardesses dress up "sexily and disrespectfully".
'We are proud that Malaysia is an Islamic country with its own cultural identity, but when our flight stewardesses dress sexily and disrespectfully, this will give tourists who use the services of our national carriers the wrong impression,' he said.
AirAsia has declined to comment on the letter.
I don't know about you, but the AirAsia uniforms don't look that immodest to me. Maybe June should stop judging people bending over.
