Cabin Crews In China Told To Wear Nappies To Reduce Covid-19 Risk

Cabin Crews In China Told To Wear Nappies To Reduce Covid-19 Risk

It's one of many measures designed to reduce the spread of the disease

Presumably, when deciding to join a cabin crew, people envisaged a glamorous lifestyle, laced with travel and smart uniforms.

Fast-forward to the present day, and cabin crews in China are being asked to add an extra garment to their outfits - nappies. You know, so they can p*** and s*** themselves on shift.

This isn't some horrific initiative designed to prevent the work of cabin crews from ever ceasing, but rather a horrific initiative designed to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Nappies could become the new normal for cabin crews in China.

The advice was issued by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) in a 49-page document entitled 'Technical Guidelines for Epidemic Prevention and Control for Airlines, Sixth Edition'.

Cabin crew on flights from countries with high levels of coronavirus are told to wear 'medical masks, double-layer disposable medical gloves, goggles, disposable hats, disposable protective clothing, and disposable shoe covers', which seems fair enough really.

Better safe than sorry, and all that.

However, the next sentence reads: "It is recommended that cabin crew members wear disposable diapers and avoid using the lavatories barring special circumstances to avoid infection risks."


The nappies recommendation only applies to charter flights to and from places where infections exceed 500 in every one million people. So perhaps cabin crews will now be fighting it out to avoid such routes - if indeed cabin crews operate in the sort of gang-based tribal world I like to imagine.

The controversial advice is designed to mitigate the spread of coronavirus.

Airlines across the world are struggling to get back on their feet after being hit hard by travel bans, which have massively reduced flight numbers this year; and it seems more and more cabin crew staff are turning to OnlyFans to bring in a little cash.

Social media accounts and eBay listings have been spotted that show users selling photos, videos and even used tights and shoes.

The women in the pictures are sprawled over empty seats and can be seen in the galley area, with the logos of the airlines on show in some of them.

Think I'd be putting all my efforts into OnlyFans if nappies are the alternative.

Such accounts have sparked investigations from numerous airlines.

A British Airways spokesperson told LADbible: "We expect the highest standard of behaviour from all of our colleagues at all times and we are investigating the claims."

An EasyJet rep said: "This is not reflective of the high standards we expect or representative of our highly professional crew. We are investigating the matter."
