Flight attendants of Seoul-based Asiana Airlines have won their fight against the skirts-only rule. This means that from now on, the airline will be offering their female flight attendants the option of wearing pants as a part of their uniform. The discussions between the airline and the flight attendants union went on for a long period of time, but the flight attendants prevailed in getting rid of the skirts-only dress code.
Pants will be available to the female flights attendants as early as next month and it will be the first time women will have the choice to wear pants in the 25-year history of the airline. Asiana is Korea’s second largest airline and Korean Air, the largest airline in the country, introduced the option of female flight attendants wearing pants 2005. Asiana said the skirt-only dress code was never meant to be discriminatory, but was based on the traditional dress of Korea.
