You've got to let the guys wear a skirt in that case!
Of course it totally depends on how the lady looks like.
Hot - skirt. the hotter, the shorter
Ugly - pants.
I will get my coat...
Why do airlines still waste so much money on silly uniforms with daft hats and scarfs.
Flying is a tedious experience and the staff should be equipped with comfortable and functional uniforms. Trouser v skirt is only one issue.
Of course they should be allowed to wear trousers. And I don't know why they have to plaster on layers of make up either.
These institutions want their uniforms to portray an image about that company.
Although i don't agree with CX enforcing skirts only for women, i also think the flight attendants have the option to leave (or not work there).
If i was applying for a job, then company culture (of which uniform rules portrays some of) would be something i look at before joining.
Perhaps some people do look at the polyester uniforms with unnecessary scarfs and facinatoresque hats and think 'wow that makes the company look great' while I just see inefficient, uncomfortable and dated uniforms that increase ticket prices.
Safety should be the highest priority, and the cabin crew are meant to be safety... experts? first. I guess they've (men?) calculated that women can provide the highest safety standards possible while wearing a skirt, but my gosh, if it were myself trying to aid people out of a smoky airplane on water, I sure was heck wouldn't want to be wearing a flimsy skirt and stockings!
It's really time to move on... And yes, men should also get the right to wear skirts, too. I'd love to see a male flight attendant in a skirt.
