Raunchy ads ‘put flight attendants at risk’

EROTIC airline ads are putting cabin crew at risk of sexual harassment and abuse, Australia’s peak flight attendant union says.

The warning comes following an onslaught of sexually explicit advertising campaigns released by airlines around the world. Earlier this week Russian start-up airline Avianova launched an advertising campaign showing bikini-clad flight attendants washing planes.

Just days later leaked images reportedly taken for Russia’s largest airline Aeroflot’s calendar featured a flight attendant posing completely nude. Secretary of the Flight Attendants Association of Australia Jo-Ann Davidson said raunchy advertisements are offensive and place cabin crew at risk. “This type of provocative advertising using cabin crew in this light is not tolerated in Australia and should not be acceptable anywhere else,” Ms Davidson said.

“Such suggestive advertising portraying cabin crew as part of the product they’re selling sends wrong messages and puts cabin crew at risk of sexual harassment and abuse – all for a $10 air fare. “Cabin crew deserve to work in a safe environment and be treated with respect and dignity.”

Ms Davidson said she is seeking the intervention of the Civil Aviation Section of the International Transport Federation into the matter. “It’s a sad reflection of the attitude of the airline’s executives – dare I say more than likely middle aged males – towards cabin crew, in particular, female cabin crew by portraying them in such a demeaning, distasteful and irrelevant manner,” she said. Airlines are increasingly turning to raunchy advertisements in a bid to lure travellers to the skies, but risk offending their passengers in the process.

    Wow…do I have to fly on Pinko Airlines to get stewies that look like that? Because I can’t remember the last time a stewardess (flight attendant for you PC homos) on one of my flights wasn’t one of two things;

    1) An average looking girl around age 35 who was probably hot ten years earlier.

    or

    2) Fat.

    Yes, we live in a bizzaro world.

    “sexual harassment” and “abuse” are two words coined to make men feel afraid and ashame of their manliness. and unfortunatly, many men have taken the bait.

    In white western cultures.

    in every feminist statement we should replace “sexual harassment” with “acts of manliness”, “abuse” with “natural behaviour”, “safe environment” with “manless environment”, “respect” with “worship”, “dignity” with “pedestalization”. so we should read:

    “Such suggestive advertising portraying cabin crew as part of the product they’re selling sends wrong messages and puts cabin crew at risk of acts of manliness and natural behaviour – all for a $10 air fare. Cabin crew deserve to work in a manless environment and be treated with worship and pedestalization.”

    Feminism is a type of parasitism.

      they have already taken the bait in white western countries, but in other countries where you have the slightest western influence exists many men are also taking it. I can give you many examples from Lebanon. Almost all the media is run by people who have adopted soft feminist principles. In Lebanon, feminism does not have a name in Arabic, hence whenever there is something related to feminism it runs under the name of “women’s rights”. the harsh feminist stance against men does not exist yet here or is still hidden due to the power that men still have. however, here and there feminism can have escapes under the guise of “women’s rights” or “sexual harassment”. check the policies and procedures of the American University of Beirut here: http://www.aub.edu.lb/pnp/Pages/index.aspx.

      Isn’t AUB a CIA project?

      They have a section about discrimination and harassment which was newly added nine years ago. All this was added under the pretext of protecting the girls (from sex), so here a traditionalist patriarchical pretext was invoqued to implement a feminist policy. All male students are indeed intimidated by these policies. Compared to the 70s and 80s, men at AUB now look emasculated.

        i’m not sure if it’s a CIA project. AUB was founded in 1866 by missionaries.

    but the real issue, is that those airline companies are offering a product which they wont sell. those ads are bogus. all this is part of a sub-conscious ponzi-scheme that implicitely promises you something without ever delivering it. well this is what ads are all about.

    They probably employ hotter girls than your typical neutered western airlines.

    maybe airlines companies should also sell some of this product, at least it could give them extra profit.
