THAI Crew Fight Waistline Guide

THAI crew fight waistline guide

By The Nation

A group of Thai Airways cabin crew members yesterday lodged a complaint with the Labour Court against a directive requiring all flight attendants to bring their weight down within an upcoming deadline, saying that such body-weight control was a threat to their health and violation of their rights.

Citing the guidelines set by a weight-loss centre, the group of 22 crew members said these measures did not guarantee safe weight loss. According to the directive, female crew members will have to their waistline within 25 to 32 inches and males between 24.5 to 35 inches. The complaint said this directive violated the original employment contracts and basic human rights.

The court accepted the complaint against the national flag carrier, THAI president Piyawasas Ammaranand and the cabin crew chief Chatchawal Senawong, and will decide on April 4 as to whether it will rule on it.

According to the directive, cabin crew will have to meet the physical measurements with six months starting from June 1 last year. Those who fail to comply will be transferred to domestic routes and then to ground staff.

As the Employer, Thai A.L. has the Right to Enforce the Termes

of the Original Contract of EMPLOYMENT apon Employees. E.O.S..

There are many reasons for enforcing the weight/size reg's, Health & Fuel costs are only 2 of them.

Also, Image is another reason, followed by the C.C.members ability to move fast in an Emergency.

Forget all of the " it imposes on our Rights etc." B/S.:annoyed:

Weather the airline has the right to act is up to the court ruling.

1, Health- --only a medic/pract can say if the member is healthy.

2, Fuel costs--say 12 crew at 10 kilo,s over-120 kilos, all you need is a big sized passenger and thats swallowed up.

3, Image ---an unhappy skinny-or a healthy happy member of normal size weight ratio.

4, Move fast----how many skinny ladies win 100 meters/200 meters races--I know thats crazy to compare. but you get the point.

5, To apprehend ----help overpower unruly passengers they need a bit of physical stregnth.

6, They do have some rights, and that is everyone has a right to object to a dictatorial management.

I understand Thai Airways Int, wants to have a better image, but this is one of the last things it wants to get its customers back.

Their late decision to order new aircraft, was the most misguided thing they did for image, together with raising the ticket price in line with operators, who already had purchased their new planes.

Retel, Think this topic was a while ao and for a budget airline--gimmicky thing--(miss--guided) way to make them look like they didn't discriminate, most ladyboys keep their waistlines trim--they have to to attract customers. But of course you do get the others who look so bad.

Seems like another Panic move by the Big Wigs at Thai Airways to improve there sliding reputation....Now around 26 most favoured Airline,rather than a consistant Top 10 position.

They are paying dear for not investing in better planes like the Arab and Indian Airlines.

Rediculous prices

Poor in flight service by rude staff....many of whom are overweight and frumpy.

Perhaps they need to look how Air Asia do it!

1. fat is not fit. fit is healthier than fat

2. multiply your 120 kilos by 50 planes and then by 1000 flights. Now you have 6 million kilos. That is a lot of fuel.

3. fat is unattractive and fat does not correspond to good personality either. Fit people are more confident.

4. How many fat people win any races at all?

5. Fat is not muscle. strength training reduces fat and keeps the waistline down. You don't get stronger just because your fat.

6. And of course the business owners have no right to make decisions to benefit their company

If Thai's goal is to improve their image through this directive, then generating negative publicity through a mandatory weight loss programme is probably not the best way to do it!

It's all been said - I reckon a compromise - let the staff toe the line and let the airline revise pricing, policies and training as Thai is very second rate airline now no matter what the plane - gone are the heady days of No1. That was last century (literally!).

Wow, really? Fat people now have bad personalities too? I'm guessing you must be really fat then, huh?
