In a bizarre circular, Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has asked its cabin crew to “wear undergarments” at work.
According to reports, the Pakistan national carrier’s flight general manager had raised objections over the dressing of the airline’s air hostesses following which the guidelines were issued.
There had been complaints about the dressing of air hostesses when they come to the office, and stay at hotels which were ruining the PIA’s image.
The cabin crew has to dress properly in formal plain clothes over “proper undergarments”, it said. The clothing should also be in accordance with Pakistan’s culture and national morals, the guideline reportedly said.
According to reports, the airline’s staff has been warned that strict action would be taken against those not complying with the new guidelines.
