PETALING JAYA: Former Malaysia Airlines CEO and managing director Abdul Aziz Abdul Rahman has rubbished comments by several PAS members that the uniforms of Malaysian flight attendants are too sexy.
“As an international airline, we have to compete with other airlines.
“Since cabin crew are in the front line of any airline service, heavy emphasis is placed on their dress code so that they look decent yet glamorous at the same time.
“I don’t think the dress code has broken the rules of any religion,” he told FMT.
The National Union of Flight Attendants Malaysia (Nufam) meanwhile said some MPs would rather argue about uniforms than talk about the safety and well-being of the workers.
“Don’t these MPs know that there are many important issues that need to be debated in Parliament other than the sexy uniform subject?” an official asked.
“These MPs should focus more on the welfare and safety of airline workers and how to improve the aviation industry as this subject has become a critical issue in the public domain.”
The official said there were many aspects of the aviation industry which needed “tremendous improvement”, as well as a need to revive some old policies in civil aviation departments.
“Malaysia Airlines has been mocked for its financial problems,” he added.
“Why can’t these MPs talk about the real stuff? Some of these MPs are also not doing enough research on airline industry issues.”

Chris Retweeted Typical Malaysian
I am actually confused, how are our MAS air stewardess dressed sexily when their work attire is a baju kebaya and I generally think all air stewardess are dressed appropriately in the sense that the skirt is below the knee So this argument is a waste of time
KUALA LUMPUR (Aug 1): Transport Minister Anthony Loke has advised those who feel that the Malaysian female flight attendants’ uniforms are inappropriate to look away.
“If you think their uniforms are too revealing, just don’t look at them,” Loke said in the Dewan Rakyat today.
He said the Government has no intention of ordering changes to the uniforms as long as they fulfill the safety criteria imposed by the Civil Aviation Authority Malaysia and International Civil Aviation Organization.
Loke’s statement, however, did not satisfy some Opposition lawmakers.
Siti Zailah Mohd Yusoff (PAS-Rantau Panjang) complained that she has been getting such a response from the Government over the past decade.
Datuk Dr Mohd Khairuddin Aman Razali (PAS-Kuala Nerus), meanwhile, questioned the need for stewardesses to wear short skirts.
Loke, however, declined to allow further comments on the matter, and resumed his winding-up speech on the royal address.
