Cathay Pacific flight attendants want 'revealing' uniforms to be redesigned
Cathay Pacific flight attendants want the Hong Kong airline to redesign their uniforms because they are too revealing and may provoke sexual harassment, it has been revealed.
Female cabin crew members said that the white blouses are too short and the red skirts too tight, leaving them uncomfortable at work, the Cathay Pacific Airways Flight Attendants Union (FAU), the Sydney Morning Herald reported.
FAU vice chairman Julian Yau said that it may be a "cause" of sexual harassment.
He said that the uniform had been a source of considerable complaint from female attendants since it was introduced in 2011, with some complaining that the shortness of the blouse left their midriff exposed when they bent down.
Female flight attendants are not asking for a complete overhaul of the uniform but want the blouse lengthened and the skirts to be more loose fitting, according to Yau.
