Ladyboys flying high
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.
