Japanese Airlines’ Miniskirt Uniform An ‘Open Invitation for Sexual Harassment’

Posted by on Mar 13, 2014 at 11:38 am

Meh. If you ask us there’s not enough cleavage.

  A Japanese airline is under fire for its new teeny-tiny uniform.

Critics say Skymark’s royal blue miniskirt “barely covers” cabin crew and is an “open invitation for sexual harassment.”

The Japan Federation of Cabin Attendants is already calling for it to be banned, even though it was only unveiled last week.

Union members claim it is “unsuitable” for female attendants, who have to stretch up and kneel down for their job. They fear perverted passengers will take up-skirt pictures during flights.

“Article 73-3 of the Civil Aeronautics Act states ‘prohibition of safety-impeding acts,’ which includes sexual harassment,” the union posted in a statement on its blog, according to Japan Times.

“The duties of cabin attendants are to prevent these (incidents) beforehand, but we’re concerned the design of the uniform might induce such disturbing acts,” it added.

The Japan Times reports the union also questions Skymark’s “morality,” and has suggested it is treating its female staff members as “products.”

I don’t know, everyone seems pretty happy.
