The uniforms are too sexy and disrespectful, says several Malaysian lawmakers.
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.
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.”
As some may probably remember, VietJet Air made headlines in 2016 because of their bikini-clad flight attendants.
