KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 2 – The uniforms of air steward and stewardess or flight attendants of airline companies in the country should be in compliance with the criteria stipulated by the aviation authority, said Transport Minister Anthony Loke.
He said it also depended on the policy of the airline companies concerned where they were also required to comply with the stipulated safety standards, including during emergency.
He said this when winding up the debate on the motion of thanks for the Yang di-Pertuan Agong’s speech on behalf of the ministry in the Dewan Rakyat today.
To a question by Siti Zailah Mohd Yusoff (PAS-Rantau Panjang), who intervened, Loke said the ministry had no plans to change the existing rules on uniforms for air stewardess.
Responding to a suggestion by Datuk Che Abdullah Mat Nawi (PAS-Tumpat) that the uniform of the stewardess of a certain airline was sexy, Loke said it was a subjective matter. “The matter is subjective … if it is sexy, don’t look at the stewardess,” he said. — Bernama
