AirAsia Cabin crew
The upper house of the Parliment of Malaysia considered the two airlines’ stewardess uniforms are too revealing to be something that may arouse passengers. They said, that the “eye-catching outfits” uniforms don’t adequately reflect the identity of an Islamic nation. Senator Hanafi Mamat said, “When our flight stewardesses dress sexily and disrespectfully, this will give tourists who use the services of our national carriers the wrong impression.”
AirAsia’s stewardess uniform is a collared white shirt underneath of a red, fitted jacket. It’s also paired with a skirt that hits mid-thigh length and boasts a slit up the side. Firefly Airlines’ stewardess uniform, however, is an orange dress that ends right above the near. It also features a slit up the side.
This wouldn’t be the first time the Malaysian Parliment has addressed its concerns over the revealing stewardess uniforms. Mamat suggested on Dec.12 that the government introduces a law that would make flight stewardess’ uniforms fall in accordance with the Sharia Law, a religious law that cultivates part of the Islamic tradition.
