That persistent women are the pants to wear, it was clear to the Chinese airline Cathay Pacific. For the first time since the establishment of the company the hong kong flight attendants the choice between a skirt or pants as a uniform.

The debate over mandatory uniforms had been going on. I gave to them by the skirts not comfortable to feel during their work, such as, for example, during loading of the bags in the high luggage racks or while travelling to work by public transport.

The company knew the side skirts only-scheme since 1946. In 2014 had a few flight attendants all argued in favour of a new design of the well-known red uniforms. It would be another four years before the changes effectively doorkregen. ‘A change of the rules not only allows for more options, but also for security’, does it sound now with the opgeluchte staff members. It would also help against sexual harassment, reports the trade union.

For effective change, however, it is still at least three years of waiting. Than are the vernieuwe uniforms entered.
