AirAsia, Firefly Stewardesses’ Uniforms Too Sexy: Malaysian MPs

Malaysian budget airlines AirAsia and FireFly has been scrutinised by two politicians from the country’s ruling party for dressing their stewardesses in uniforms that are deemed “too revealing”.

While speaking in Parliament on Monday, Senator Datuk Abdullah Mat Yasim, a division chief of Umno, said that the fitted attire of the two airlines’ female flight attendants is “eye-catching” and “can arouse passengers,” especially young people, reported The New Straits Times.

“The Malaysian Aviation Commission (MAVCOM) must really look into this,” he said when debating the MAVCOM (Amendment) Bill 2017.

Senator Datuk Megat Zulkarnian Omardin supported his statement who suggested that there should be changes to the design.

Datuk Megat, who is also the general-secretary of the Malaysian National Silat Federation, said: “My wife is worried whenever I fly alone on Malindo or AirAsia.”

“This is a real hassle for me,” he added to laughter from other Parliament members.

Without further elaborating, Datuk Abdullah said that the flight attendant uniforms of Malaysian-Indonesian budget carrier Malinda Air are still acceptable as the “sensitive areas” are covered, despite their uniforms also being body-hugging.

Mr Abdullah was praised by the assembly’s deputy president Abdul Halim Abd Samad for speaking out on the issue.

He said: “This is a good topic that many people can relate to as they always take flights.”

Last week, Senator Datuk Hanafi Mamat said that shariah-compliant uniforms for female flight attendants serving the country’s airline companies should be introduced to strengthen Malaysia’s image as a Muslim country during another Parliament sitting.

He had said that tourists will get the wrong impression of Malaysia if flight attendants dressed “sexily and disrespectfully.”
