Air stewardesses from both AirAsia and Firefly airlines are currently in hot water because of one strange thing – their uniforms. According to a senator in Malaysia, their uniforms are arousing passengers because they are “too revealing”.

Abdullah Mat Yasim of the Malaysian senate said that the “eye-catching outfits” are immodest because they do not portray the country’s Islamic roots. The controversial comments were made in Dewan Negara, the upper house of the Malaysian Parliament.

According to several Malaysian lawmakers, these air stewardesses uniforms are very “revealing”.

“This is a good topic that many people can relate to as they always take flights,” agreed Abdul Halim Abd Samad, deputy president of Dewan Negara.

The politicians believe the stewardesses should reflect the country’s culture, through their outfits.

The uniforms should display Eastern – not Western – values, they say.

Close observers will likely mention that all these comments came after another senator, Hanafi Mamat, pointed out that stewardesses should wear shariah-compliant clothing, reported the DailyMail.


In an interview with Channel News Asia, the senator explained:

“We are proud that Malaysia is an Islamic country with its own cultural identity, but when our flight stewardesses dress sexily and disrespectfully, this will give tourists who use the services of our national carriers the wrong impression.

“The time has come for the government to provide new uniform guidelines which will portray Malaysia as a Muslim country with strong Eastern values.”

Clearly, these Malaysian politicians have not yet seen the unique uniform of Vietnamese stewardesses.

As some may probably remember, VietJet Air made headlines in 2016 because of their bikini-clad flight attendants.
