Flight Attendants
« on: December 21, 2019, 06:23:38 PM »
I recently flew with TAP Portugal and noticed that the flight attendants are way older and mostly male.  This seems to be the same with all American carriers as well.  So how does Aeroflot manage to have such beauties on board?  Any thoughts?  I can't imagine the pay is higher.

Do folks choose which airline in the gender / looks of the aircrew?..

May be so..

You should try Lufthansa I think they have men dressed as women and very short butch lesbian women as attendants .. part of the equality program they are running  :laugh:

As for Aeroflot well the women are nothing special there I think... I cannot remember last time looking at the attenuates thinking wow she's hot.. most are not even above average I would say..

Most if not all above average good looking women, can earn more instead of working as a trolly jolly and have a better life style and standard by attaching themselves to rich and famous people. They are going to be accessory and ornament to some old person who can keep them in style and comfort.

Times change. The job of 'airline stewardess' is long gone and so are most of the perks that made the job an attractive one. Pay isn't good, hours are tough, layovers are no longer fun, travel has been democratized making the work less attractive as a means of meeting the 'right' kind of guys.
...everything ends always well; if it’s still bad, then it’s not the end!

They pay more than many jobs in the FSU, so they can still get
a slim, pleasant featured and relatively feminine woman for the
role. Fat-@ssed Bull-dykes with moles that have 6 inch black
whiskers growing out can't get hired because Russia doesn't
have any laws requiring Aeroflot to do so.

The job has loss some of the prestige that it had in the past so they
no longer have super models vying for the job.


NOTE: I couldn't find another source for this salary information

Many women are just older been doing same job for 25 years lol.
You don't look as good s you did 25 years ago.

Personally I don't care, as long as they are good at their job.
Some are, some are not. Most airlines have become so cheap.
For longer flights I often buy something before I get on plane.

I've been on a couple of dates with Aeroflot stewardesses and know first-hand that they more or less officially filter for attractive women. As in maximum weight and a certain type of look that is preferred.

If someone keels over and dies ... you'll find they'll have at least one pretty strong guy on board..

A huge 'hell's Angel ' type of guy died on a flight to Helsinki via Bangkok on us over Uzbekistan - he must have weighed 140Kg and been 190cm - One Finnair steward and  a mate of the deceased carried his corpse to the back of the plane - they'd HAVE to have been strong .

I remember when I was a young man, if a friend said they were dating a flight attendant, no pics needed, you knew she was smoking hot.  No longer.

A couple of days business in Estonia.

Not till Estonia. They are chunkier than they once were, but there is still plenty of nice women in Estonia. They used to say it is the home of Europe’s most beautiful women. It is probably still true. You’d have to look for the ugly ones.

Wiz, Please share with RUA what dating 3/4 of a flight attendant is like. This is the making of the mother of all tripping reports.   :biggrin:

Wiz has almost certainly been reading 'confessions of an airline Pilot ' - as I seriously doubt he was either an 'Adonis' or his 'memories' are his own ..

Dementia playing tricks on you, Wiz ?


A ( real) Gentleman doesn't even need to suggest his past 'conquests' - realising it's nothing to be proud of ... pulling is the EASY part .. Well, I always thought so ;)
