The Daily Mail has some pictures of an event put on by modeling agency Oriental Beauty, said to primarily be for flight attendant recruiting. Perhaps most interesting is that participants modeled both flight attendant uniforms and bikinis.
What were the requirements to participate?
On its website, Oriental Beauty stipulated that potential candidates had to be at least five foot six in height, although for people with exceptional look, this could be dropped to five foot five.
The women were required to be ‘elegant, slim, have sweet voice and have no scars in the exposed part of their skin.’
Ah, yes, of course, an inch grace for exceptionally beautiful people!
Here’s a video of the “show:”
Maybe it’s just me, but I’d much rather Chinese carriers choose flight attendants based on their education and language skills rather than just their looks. I’ve consistently found the largest language barrier to be on Chinese airlines.
Regardless, this recruiting method is quite a contrast to what we’re used to in the US, that’s for sure!
