Lose weight or Lose Job…But why ?

Is it necessary for Flight attendants or for that matter any person in hospitality industry to be slim?

If not, then will he/she be able to retain their job even without losing weight ?

A new Turkish Airlines policy of telling “flight attendants of size” to lose weight or else lose their job, has raised this question once again.

The above TA order proves two things : One weight is an issue among men and women in hospitality industry as well. And two, people who get into a job by virtue of their looks and personality, protest when their employer wants them to remain presentable . 

An airlines has many motivations to keep their onboard staff trim. One that brings aesthetics (in Worldly sense) to their business. Second, the place expends less fuel as it has to carry less weight.
