Airline Recruits Hot Slim Female Flight Attendants To Save Fuel

By Robert Paul Reyes

"An Indian airline has hit on possibly the worthiest excuse yet for hiring slim women as cabin crew -- it saves fuel and therefore money.


While some airlines admit to hiring women for their sex appeal, budget carrier GoAir has told The Times of India it will be hiring predominantly female flight attendants in future because they are 15-20 kilos lighter on average than men.

The airline estimates each extra kilo on board costs Rs3 ($0.05) per flying hour, and the new policy will save it up to $500,000 annually."


I applaud GoAir for thinking outside of the box, and coming up with an innovative and aesthetically pleasing way to save money.

Fuel costs compromise up to one half of an airline`s operating costs, and anything that will reduce the weight on board saves the airline money and reduces the costs of tickets.

Hiring slim women is an excellent idea, but it doesn`t go far enough, doing away with the bulky flight attendant uniforms and replacing them with bikinis will save money and please the passengers.

Samoa Air has taken a different tack in addressing the weight issue, last year they became the first airline to charge fees according to weight.

The price of airplane tickets is soaring because of high jet fuel prices, and something must be done. To hell with political correctness, airlines should hire only slim female flight attendants clad in bikinis. I can`t be accused of being a male chauvinist pig; I didn`t refer to female flight attendants as "stewardesses."
