La­dy­boys fly­ing high

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

BANGKOK: Thai trans­sex­ual la­dy­boys are tak­ing to the air as flight at­ten­dants for a new air­line, in a na­tion where they are al­ready un­usu­ally vis­i­ble.

Work­ing for new char­ter air­line PC Air, trans­sex­ual flight at­ten­dants made their de­but on a flight from Bangkok to the south­ern city of Su­rat Thani on Thurs­day, serv­ing drinks and snacks and car­ry­ing out safety demon­stra­tions.

The air­line’s pres­i­dent said the la­dy­boy flight at­ten­dants might have a spe­cial ad­van­tage. “They might pro­vide bet­ter ser­vices be­cause they un­der­stand both males and fe­males,” he said.
